Amazon Redshift Administration
Short of giving everyone access to the AWS Console, it's difficult for non-AWS administrators to get insight into ETL cycles, recent load failures, table architectures, etc. This Block is meant to address this issue, at least in part. This Block gives insight into the following
- Table Load Summary
- Recent Files Loaded
- Recent Load Errors
- Database Consumption
- Table Architecture This Block has been updated to include performance metrics as well.

If you want the reports to include data from other users you can execute these grants with SYSLOG ACCESS
