Updated at: May 26, 2020 GMT+08:00


You can set alarm rules by referring to Setting Alarm Rules to customize the monitored objects and notification policies and stay aware of the RDS operating status.

The RDS alarm rules include alarm rule names, services, dimensions, monitored objects, metrics, alarm thresholds, monitoring period, and whether to send notifications.

Setting Alarm Rules

  1. Log in to the management console.
  2. Under Management & Deployment, click Cloud Eye.
  3. In the navigation pane on the left, choose Cloud Service Monitoring > Relational Database Service.

    • Specify Name and Description.
    • Select Use template for Method. The template contains the CPU usage, memory usage, and storage space usage.
    • Click to enable alarm notification. The validity period is 24 hours by default. If the topics you required are not displayed in the drop-down list, click Create an SMN topic. Then, select Generated alarm and Cleared alarm for Trigger Condition.

      Cloud Eye sends notifications only within the validity period specified in the alarm rule.

  6. Click Create. The alarm rule is created.

    For details about how to create alarm rules, see the Using Alarm Templates to Create Alarm Rules in the Cloud Eye User Guide.
