Hello! We have implemented pmm with the docker to get all the RDS instances’ metrics and it works well. I am able to get all the metrics of all our RDS instances in AWS and I can see I have 2 docker containers running, one for the actual system and another for the actual data pmm-server and pmm-data. However, we have been hitting some limits with AWS’ CloudWatch and it’s costing us a lot of money. Now with Prometheus I know I can just change the global_scrape_interval but for some reason with this docker container when I try to change the file /etc/prometheus.yml it saids “Managed by pmm-managed. DO NOT EDIT”
So my question is, how do I change the interval within this docker container as it is costing too much money with CloudWatch and I’d like to change it from 1 minute to let’s say 15 minutes or 30 minutes.

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated


is there anyone out there who knows about this Docker container?

Hey there, I need to move your post to the PMM channel - the Percona Monitoring Plugins are a different product.
