Overview Details to Access my AWS DMS Task Information

by | Aug 1, 2021

Wondering how to use Overview Details to Access my AWS DMS Task Information? We can help you.

Here, at Bobcares, we assist our customers with several AWS queries as part of our AWS Support Services.

Today, let us discuss how to use the Overview Details section.


Overview Details to Access my AWS DMS Task Information

Generally, if we do not have the most recent AWS CLI version we may face errors.

Moving ahead, let us see how our Support Techs go about Overview Details.

  1. Initially, we open the AWS DMS console.
  2. Then from the navigation pane, we select Database migration tasks.
  3. Later, we need to select the name of the task and then review the Overview details section.

It contains information about the task such as Task ARN, Status, Migration type, Last failure message, etc.

To maintain the reliability, availability, and performance of AWS DMS and the AWS solutions it is essential that we monitor.

We should collect monitoring data from all of the parts of the AWS solution to easily debug a multi-point failure if one occurs.

There are several tools that AWS provides to monitor AWS DMS tasks and resources.

Now, let us discuss those tools in detail.

AWS DMS events and notification

Suppose an AWS DMS event occurs. In such a case, it uses Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS) to provide notifications.

Task status

With task status and task control table, we can monitor the progress of the task. It indicates the condition of an AWS DMS task and its associated resources.

Amazon CloudWatch alarms and logs

With Amazon CloudWatch alarms, we can watch one or more task metrics over a time period that we specify.

For instance, if a metric exceeds a given threshold, a notification is sent.

AWS CloudTrail logs

It provides a record of actions taken by a user, IAM role, or an AWS service in AWS DMS.

CloudTrail captures all API calls for AWS DMS as events. This includes calls from the AWS DMS console and from code calls to the AWS DMS API operations.

Database logs

We can view, download, and watch database logs for the task endpoints using the AWS Management Console, AWS CLI, or the API.

In addition, we can modify a task to change the table mapping, task settings, or other properties.

For example, to modify the target table preparation mode, we select the task in the AWS DMS console and then select Modify.

Similarly, to modify other task settings, such as logging, we use the AWS CLI.
