350+ teams generate 2,500+ alerts every week.
Be the first to know about the reason for a database downtime. Get notified of any maintenance affecting your database instances.
Prevent yourself from a lot of trouble by receiving a notification indicating your database instance consumes more than 90% of the available storage.
Stay calm when RDS is recovering from a failure. For example, receive an alert when an automatic fail-over happens from your master database instance to your standby database instance.
RDS publishes events of different types (e.g., recovery, low storage, and failover). Create a subscribe to all or selected event types. Afterwards, RDS will send me the events via HTTPS.
Once I receive an event, I check if the event is a duplicate to reduce noise. I also enrich the event with Quick Links to the AWS Management Console. Finally, I send a Slack message with the event to a single engineer of your team.
A member of your team now has to acknowledge the alert. I escalate unnoticed alerts to another team member or the whole crew if necessary. Once acknowledged, I will wait until you have fixed the issue.
