Getting the status of a database activity stream

You can get the status of an activity stream using the console or Amazon CLI.

To get the status of a database activity stream

  1. Open the Amazon RDS console at https://console.amazonaws.cn/rds/.

  2. In the navigation pane, choose Databases, and then choose the DB cluster link.

  3. Choose the Configuration tab, and check Database activity stream for status.

You can get the activity stream configuration for a DB cluster as the response to a describe-db-clusters CLI request.

The following example describes my-cluster.

aws rds --region my-region describe-db-clusters --db-cluster-identifier my-cluster

The following example shows a JSON response. The following fields are shown:

  • ActivityStreamKinesisStreamName

  • ActivityStreamKmsKeyId

  • ActivityStreamStatus

  • ActivityStreamMode

These fields are the same for Aurora PostgreSQL and Aurora MySQL, except that ActivityStreamMode is always async for Aurora MySQL, while for Aurora PostgreSQL it might be sync or async.
