Service integrations

Service integrations provide additional functionality and features by connecting different Aiven services together.

Benefits of integrated telemetry

Aiven automatically provides basic host-level resource metrics (CPU, memory, disk and network) for every service under the Metrics tab on the Aiven web console.

The advanced telemetry feature brings much more detailed, service-specific metrics to the Aiven user, who can then drill down into the service behavior and identify issues and performance bottlenecks.

Service integrations billing

The advanced telemetry data and predefined dashboards do not cost anything extra, but they require you to have an Aiven for PostgreSQL® and an Aiven for Grafana® service, which will be billed hourly as regular Aiven services.

Can I define my own metrics dashboards?

Yes. You can use the predefined dashboards as a starting point and save them under a different name or you can build one from scratch. Dashboards whose title starts with the word "Aiven" are automatically managed, so it is better to name the dashboards differently from that.

Can I access the telemetry data directly in PostgreSQL?

Yes. The PostgreSQL service is a normal PostgreSQL database service that can be accessed via any PostgreSQL client software or your own application or script. You can perform complex queries over the data and so on.

Can I add alerts in Grafana for the telemetry data?

Yes. You can add alert thresholds for individual graphs and attach different alerting mechanisms to them for sending out alerts. See the Grafana documentation for more information.

Use service integrations

You can create service integrations or start using existing integrations.
