You can monitor the health, capacity, and performance of your Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Database service resources by using metrics , alarms , and notifications. For more information, see Monitoring and Notifications.
The Database service metrics help you measure useful quantitative data, such as CPU and storage utilization, the number of successful and failed database logon and connection attempts, database operations, SQL queries, and transactions, and so on. You can use metrics data to diagnose and troubleshoot problems with your Database Service resources.
See the following topics for information about currently available database metrics:
IAM policies: To monitor resources, you must be given the required type of access in a policy written by an administrator, whether you're using the Console or the REST API with an SDK, CLI, or other tool. The policy must give you access to the monitoring services as well as the resources being monitored. If you try to perform an action and get a message that you don’t have permission or are unauthorized, confirm with your administrator the type of access you've been granted and which compartment you should work in. For more information on user authorizations for monitoring, see the Authentication and Authorization section for the related service: Monitoring or Notifications.
Using the API
For information about using the API and signing requests, see REST APIs and Security Credentials. For information about SDKs, see Software Development Kits and Command Line Interface.
