Amazon RDS Integration

Like most other metrics monitoring systems, CloudWatch alerts are limited to static thresholds, which can easily become a source of dreaded false-positive alerts. SignalFx can use calculations to trigger alerts on service-wide patterns, as AWS metrics stream from RDS. Amazon RDS metrics are aggregated with metrics from the rest of the services in your environment, so you’re notified with enough time to fix an impending issue well before it affects performance or availability.
