rds_exporter can't determin resourceID


I installed rds_exporter from the github project and got eveything running in a container image fine but now I’m getting this error

ERRO[0000] Skipping instance <…> - can’t determine resourceID. component=sessions source=“sessions.go:125”

I thought that perhaps my access id keys haven’t been setup correctly but I’m not sure on that one as it’s been set to readonly for RDS.

I have multiple instances in my config file, here’s a santized version of what it says


  • instance:
    honor_labels: true
  • targets:
  •<incremental ports going from 9040-9055>
    aws_access_key: “”
    aws_secret_key: “”

Does anyone have any advice?
