This topic describes the metrics for PolarDB for MySQL.

When you call an API operation provided by Cloud Monitor, you may need to set the Namespace and Period parameters. Set the parameters for the current service in the following way:

  • Set the Namespace parameter to acs_polardb.
  • Set the Period parameter to an integral multiple of 60s. The default value is 60s.

The following table describes the valid values of the MetricName and Dimensions parameters for the current service.

Metric Unit MetricName Dimensions Statistics
ActiveSessions count cluster_active_sessions userId, clusterId, and nodeId Average
ConnectionUtilization % cluster_connection_utilization userId, clusterId, and nodeId Average
CPUUtilization % cluster_cpu_utilization userId, clusterId, and nodeId Average
Input And Output KB cluster_data_io userId, clusterId, and nodeId Average
Innodb Input/Output Per Second count/s cluster_data_iops userId, clusterId, and nodeId Average
Input/Output Per Second count/s cluster_iops userId, clusterId, and nodeId Average
Memory Buffer Hit Ratio % cluster_mem_hit_ratio userId, clusterId, and nodeId Average
MemoryUtilization % cluster_memory_utilization userId, clusterId, and nodeId Average
QueriesPerSecond count cluster_qps userId, clusterId, and nodeId Average
Slow Queries Per Second count/s cluster_slow_queries_ps userId, clusterId, and nodeId Average
TransactionsPerSecond count/s cluster_tps userId, clusterId, and nodeId Average
Note The following information describes how the Slow Queries Per Second metric is measured and the precautions when you set the threshold for this metric:
  • The value of the Slow Queries Per Second metric is the number of slow SQL queries within a minute divided by 60s. For example, if a slow SQL query occurred within a minute, the value of the Slow Queries Per Second metric is calculated by using the following formula: 1/60 = 0.016.
  • During the routine maintenance for ApsaraDB RDS instances, slow SQL queries may occur. Therefore, we recommend that you do not set the threshold of the Slow Queries Per Second metric to a value that is too small, for example, 0. Instead, you can set the threshold to 1.
