This werk fixes some issues with the monitoring of AWS RDS DBs:

  • The checks aws_rds.network_io and aws_rds.disk_io now yield correct rates.
  • The services produced by the checks aws_rds.transaction_logs_usage, aws_rds.replication_slot_usage and aws_rds.agent_jobs are now discoverable, which wasn't the case before due to a bug in the AWS special agent.
  • For PostgreSQL databases, the check aws_rds.replica_lag now additionally reports the Cloudwatch metric OldestReplicationSlotLag, which wasn't the case before due to a bug in the AWS special agent.
  • The rule "AWS/RDS Replica lag" for the check aws_rds.replica_lag has been adjusted to allow for setting levels smaller than one second on the replication lag.
  • This werk is incompatible. Depending on the used configuration, users should delete and re-create the rules "AWS/RDS Replica lag".
