Monitoring Alibaba Cloud Apsara RDS MySQL Technology Preview

Configuration

AliCloud Apsara RDS MySQL sensor can be made unavailable and it can be filtered by tags and resource groups. It is possible to configure AliCloud Apsara RDS MySQL sensor through agent configuration in <agentinstall_dir>/etc/instana/configuration.yaml by:

  1. Enable the AliCloud sensor and set the AccessKey pair in the agent's configuration.yaml file:

    com.instana.plugin.alicloud:
      # Valid values: true, false
      enabled: true # enabled (true) by default
      # Alibaba Cloud AccessKey ID  is used to verify the identity of the user
      accessKeyId: '<YOUR_ALICLOUD_ACCESSKEY_ID>'
      # Alibaba Cloud AccessKey secret is used to encrypt and verify the signature string
      accessKeySecret: '<YOUR_ALICLOUD_ACCESSKEY_SECRET>'
    
  2. Enable the AliCloud Aspara RDS MySQL sensor in the agent's configuration.yaml file:

    com.instana.plugin.alicloud.rds.mysql:
      # Valid values: true, false
      enabled: true # enabled (true) by default
      # Alibaba Cloud AccessKey ID  is used to verify the identity of the user
      accessKeyId: '<YOUR_ALICLOUD_MYSQL_ACCESS_KEY_ID>'
      # Alibaba Cloud AccessKey secret is used to encrypt and verify the signature string
      accessKeySecret: '<YOUR_ALICLOUD__MYSQL_ACCESS_KEY_SECRET>'
    

Note: The AccessKey pair in section com.instana.plugin.alicloud can be applied for each service by default, so AccessKey pair in each service section is not required, unless you need individual AccessKey for the specific service. Set the AccessKey pair in service section overrides the AccessKey in com.instana.plugin.alicloud for the service.
