The Database Info panel provides basic system and hardware information for your database.
The entries in the Database Info panel are defined as follows:

The hardware category or name for your database instance. For Amazon RDS, this is the DB instance type of the database.
vCPU
The number of virtual CPU cores available on the database instance.
Memory

Provisioned IOPS
Number of IOPS allocated to the database instance (Amazon RDS instances with Provisioned IOPS SSD storage only).

Best Configuration and Current Status

The top of the Database Overview displays the best configuration OtterTune has seen so far and the latest performance and status information for the database.
The database's best configuration is the configuration with the largest improvement of target objective value over the database's baseline (first) configuration. The Best Configuration panel on the left displays the following information:
Target Objective
The measured target objective for the database's best configuration. See Target Objective for more details.

The next panel in the Database Overview displays the Database Insights results. This panel shows a list of insights that OtterTune generates to provide deeper visibility into the performance and workload characteristics of your database.
The entries in the Database Insights panel are defined as follows:
Workload Classification
Workload Classification Classify database workload based on the number of read and write rows. There are five categories of workload: read-only, read-heavy, write-heavy, write-only, balanced.
Peak Time

Disk Read/Write IOPS
Analyze disk read and write IOPS.

Database Health

The next panel in the Database Overview displays the Database Health check results. Each entry shows the name, status, and details for a given check. Note that the details for failed checks also include suggestions to remedy them. The panel displays up to three Database Health checks. To access the complete list of checks, select See all in the panel or the Database Health tab at the top of the Database Overview page. See Database Health for more details.

Last Configurations
