Monitoring a Neptune global database using CloudWatch metrics

Neptune supports the following CloudWatch metrics that you can use to monitor a Neptune global database:

  • NeptuneGlobalDBDataTransferBytes   –   The number of bytes of redo log data transferred from the primary Amazon Web Services Region to a secondary Amazon Web Services Region in a Neptune global database.

  • NeptuneGlobalDBReplicatedWriteIO   –   The number of write I/O operations replicated from the primary Amazon Web Services Region in the global database to the cluster volume in a secondary Amazon Web Services Region.

    The billing calculations for each DB cluster in a Neptune global database use the VolumeWriteIOPS metric to account for writes performed within that cluster. For the primary DB cluster, the billing calculations use NeptuneGlobalDBReplicatedWriteIO to account for the cross-region replication to secondary DB clusters.

  • NeptuneGlobalDBProgressLag   –   The number of milliseconds that a secondary cluster is behind the primary cluster for both user transactions and system transactions.
