    1. I just added a RDS proxy on my RDS database, the connections started to rise on the DB, the CPU did not. The RDS is a r5.large and hence can give 1000 connections. The percentage is set to 75% and hence the connections went upto 750. Wierd part, Borrowed connections – 0, Client Connections, 1-2, How is that possible.

    2. Do you know why Im having this issue?
      "Type": "RDS_INSTANCE",

      "TargetHealth": {

      "State": "UNAVAILABLE",


      "Description": "DBProxy Target is waiting for proxy to scale to desired capacity"

      I have tried with different policy and secrets but Im just having the same error
