Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China.

Viewing Amazon RDS events

You can retrieve events for your RDS resources through the Amazon Web Services Management Console, which shows events from the past 24 hours. You can also retrieve events for your RDS resources by using the describe-events Amazon CLI command, or the DescribeEvents RDS API operation. If you use the Amazon CLI or the RDS API to view events, you can retrieve events for up to the past 14 days.

Note

If you need to store events for longer periods of time, you can send Amazon RDS events to CloudWatch Events. For more information, see Creating a rule that triggers on an Amazon RDS event
