Opening the Performance Insights dashboard

To view the Performance Insights dashboard in the Amazon Management Console, use the following steps:
  1. Open the Performance Insights console at

  2. Choose a DB instance. The Performance Insights dashboard is shown for that Amazon DocumentDB instance.

    For Amazon DocumentDB instances with Performance Insights enabled, you can also reach the dashboard by choosing the Sessions item in the list of instances. Under Current activity, the Sessions item shows the database load in average active sessions over the last five minutes. The bar graphically shows the load. When the bar is empty, the instance is idle. As the load increases, the bar fills with blue. When the load passes the number of virtual CPUs (vCPUs) on the instance class, the bar turns red, indicating a potential bottleneck.

  3. (Optional) Choose a different time interval by selecting a button in the upper right. For example, to change the interval to 1 hour, select 1h.

    In the following screenshot, the DB load interval is 1 hour.

  4. To refresh your data automatically, enable Auto refresh.

    The Performance Insight dashboard automatically refreshes with new data. The refresh rate depends on the amount of data displayed:

    • 5 minutes refreshes every 5 seconds.

    • 1 hour refreshes every minute.

    • 5 hours refreshes every minute.

    • 24 hours refreshes every 5 minutes.

    • 1 week refreshes every hour.
