Monitoring MySQL

Author: Geert Vanderkelen

In this talk we'll explore what we should monitor inside and outside MySQL to keep it up and running. We will give a few typical situations where one can see if, for example, performance is degrading. An overview of various tools used for surveying services will be shown, such as Nagios and MySQL Enterprise Monitor, which is available only to Enterprise customers. The talk starts with a short overview of the MySQL team within Sun Microsystems, and what to expect from MySQL in the future.
