Physical device and Multi-AZ secondary host metrics both are accessible on RDS for Oracle, PostgreSQL and MySQL. With data described on every physical device, you can observe how many physical devices make up their volumes, if I/O is balanced over physical devices, and view if latency is uniform over physical devices. You can smoothly integrate Enhanced Monitoring with third-party applications to observe your Amazon RDS DB instances. To get entire list of obtainable metrics and further information about this feature, refer Enhanced Monitoring documentation.
