Monitor your Amazon RDS usage metrics against AWS service limits

Starting today, Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) is publishing usage metrics to Amazon CloudWatch, so that you can monitor against account-wide service limits. Publishing these usage metrics gives you the operational visibility to manage utilization and alarm as your usage approaches service limits. We added support for 11 service limit metrics: AllocatedStorage, DBInstances, DBClusters, DBSecurityGroups, ReservedDBInstances, DBClusterParameterGroups, DBParameterGroups, ManualSnapshots, ManualClusterSnapshots, DBSubnetGroups, OptionGroups.
