When you have a MySQL database, you would soon find out that one of the biggest concerns is monitoring it. Thankfully, you have MySQL Enterprise Monitor to give you a way to see how your MySQL database is performing, in real time. This also helps you keep track of your databases’ availability.
MySQL Enterprise Monitor can be set up in just ten minutes. There are no configurations to do and no agents are needed.
With MySQL Enterprise Monitor, you can:
- Get real-time performance monitoring. MySQL Enterprise Monitor will monitor your queries and server metrics to keep track of your performance. If there are deviations from the established benchmarks, you will get an alert. But that does not stop there. MySQL Enterprise Monitor will also provide you with advice based on best practices so that you could change variable settings and configuration that would improve your MySQL’s performance.
- Get availability monitoring in real-time. If you have service level agreements that you have to uphold, you need to monitor the availability of your database to ensure your compliance with the SLA. MySQL Enterprise Monitor is the best way to do this.
- Get a visual dashboard to manage your MySQL Servers. From query performance, execution times, to pinpointing which SQL code is making your database slow, you can easily see these using the performance schema included in MySQL Server 5.6.
- Remote control your tracking. With MySQL Enterprise Monitor, you do not even have to be onsite. You can remotely monitor your servers on the cloud. You do not even need remote agents to do it.
- Pinpoint and address problematic queries. You can use correlated graphs to compare server load, RAM usage, thread statistics and other execution parameters. This way, you can see queries that hog your resources and perhaps pinpoint to a bigger concern that affects performance.
- Deal with security issues. MySQL Enterprise Monitor can help you identify security issues and vulnerabilities in your servers. It can even give your database administrators advice on how to plug these security holes. You will also be alerted on potential security risks before it becomes a problem.
On top of these, you could also monitor your:
- Important metrics for your MySQL Cluster. You get historical data and alerts on likely issues such as failed nodes or low data memory.
- Replication. This includes being able to see the health, availability and performance of MySQL slaves and masters, and gives you advice on how to make sure that your servers are in sync on top of telling you how to get rid of server lags and other similar problems before you experience a down time.
- Backups. This allows you to ensure that your backups are running and up to date.
- Capacity requirements. MySQL Enterprise Monitor checks your disk and gives you trend projections and analysis for you to know future requirements when it comes to capacity. You can set it to alert you if your disk space is bound to run out over a specific time period, i.e. 6 months or 12 months.
- Operating system, including RAM usage, CPU usage, file system, swap, disk I/O even in real time.
