Database Autonomy Service (DAS) provides the slow query log analysis feature for ApsaraDB RDS for PostgreSQL. You can use this feature to check the trend, execution, and optimization suggestions for slow query logs of your ApsaraDB RDS for PostgreSQL instance.


Your ApsaraDB RDS for PostgreSQL instance runs ApsaraDB RDS for PostgreSQL High-availability Edition.


  1. Access RDS Instances, select a region at the top, and then click the ID of the target RDS instance.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Autonomy Service > Slow Query Logs.
  3. On the Slow Log Analysis tab, specify a time range and view the trends, statistics, and details of the slow queries within the time range.
    Note When you select a time range, the end time must be later than the start time, and the interval between the start time and the end time cannot exceed 24 hours. You can query slow query logs within a month.
    • You can click a time point in the trend chart and view the statistics and details of the slow queries at the time point.
    • You can click Export Slow Log to download slow query logs.
    • On the Slow Log Statistics tab, perform the following steps:
      • Click Sample in the Actions column corresponding to the SQL template to view the slow query log sample of the SQL template.
      • Click Optimize in the Actions column corresponding to the SQL template. In the SQL Diagnostic Optimization dialog box, view the SQL diagnosis results.

        If you accept the SQL diagnosis suggestions, click Copy in the upper-right corner and paste the optimized SQL statements to the database client or Data Management (DMS) for execution. If you do not accept the SQL diagnosis suggestions, click OK.

        Note DAS performs SQL diagnostics based on the complexity of SQL statements, the amount of data in the table, and the database load. Suggestions may be returned in more than 20 seconds after the SQL diagnostics are performed. After the diagnostics is complete, the SQL diagnostics engine provides diagnosis results, optimization suggestions, and expected optimization benefits. You can determine whether to accept the suggestions based on the diagnosis results.

        You can also click Database Expert Service to purchase the expert service. Database Expert Service provides value-added professional database services, such as emergency assistance, health diagnostics, performance optimization, security assurance, and data migration.
