Can I use SQL Monitor on Amazon RDS instances?

Postby dylanbeattie » Wed May 14, 2014 11:11 am

We have an application deployed on AWS that uses Amazon Relational Data Services (RDS) as a SQL Server backend. This gives us full SQL Server access but no Windows-level access to the underlying host OS. Is there any way we can use SQL Monitor to analyze database activity on this box?

Unfortunately, SQL Monitor doesn't support monitoring Amazon RDS at the moment. It might be something that will be in the future, but at the moment there is no workaround or way to force it. Even installing 'locally' would not help as it would still try to access the host machines data, including PerfMon, Remote Registry etc.
