RDS Instances

RDS Instances in Amazon Web Services, when left idle, can also contribute to resource waste.

This is particularly notable in scenarios where an RDS Instance hasn't had any connections for over 7 days.

In such cases, these instances are likely underutilized or possibly forgotten, yet they continue to incur costs.

By monitoring RDS Instances and identifying those without any connections for a week or more, you can flag these as potential waste.

Taking action to either decommission or repurpose these idle instances can significantly optimize your AWS resource usage and reduce unnecessary expenditure.
