MySQL Monitoring Tools

MySQL Monitoring

One of the world's most popular databases, MySQL, is a relational database management system (RDBMS) with a wide-range of applications in business infrastructure. As applications continue to grow in complexity, the need for continuous monitoring also increases. To maintain a smooth continuity of the innumerable transactions processed by the MySQL server on a day to day basis, it is essential for business organizations to opt for a robust and perceptive MySQL management system, rather than a staple monitor.

Monitoring MySQL performance with Applications Manager

Applications Manager is a MySQL monitoring tool that helps database administrators track the performance and availability of their MySQL databases. With the help of MySQL performance monitoring, DB Admins can get a clearer picture on the operational efficiency, analyze the performance in depth,and make informed decisions to ensure maximum uptime. It has a wide range of capabilities that are tailored to facilitate MySQL monitoring through an intuitive web client.

While most MySQL monitoring tools generate notifications in the event of a performance issue, Applications Manager has the capability to provide additional insights about the issue. This allows DB admins to analyze the root cause of the anomalies and troubleshoot them quickly. Applications Manager helps you ease your management efforts and allows you to visualize, manage and monitor database farms effectively.

ManageEngine Applications Manager's MySQL monitoring dashboard

Applications Manager uses intelligent forecasting reports to help predict the growth trend of critical MySQL resources that could result in performance bottlenecks and downtime. It also provides an understanding into the database usage patterns which gives room for capacity planning. With the aid of key MySQL metrics obtained from the tool, you can easily understand the health, availability, and performance of different MySQL components.

MySQL metrics to monitor:

For a deeper understanding into your database environment, Applications Manager provides visibility into important MySQL components such as:

  • Connections: Track the KPIs related to connections such as the time taken to connect with the database and the timeout period. In addition, get a graph on the number of open and aborted connections present in the server.
  • Requests: Get statistics on the rate at which requests are processed, sent, and received.
  • Threads: Extensive information on threads is laid out which gives you an overview on the number of that is involved in processing the request. Also includes the size of the cache and the number of threads in it.
  • Table Locks: Know the number of times a table lock was obtained immediately and the times the system rejected a table lock despite waiting.
  • Key Hits: Measure the key hit-rate to estimate the read efficiency of key requests. You also get the key cache size and usage statistics.
  • Database: A pie chart of all your system databases is available for easy comprehension of memory distribution. There is also a detailed breakdown of index size, table count, and health of each database.
  • Replications: Get MySQL replication metrics for master and slave processes along with the time lag between each other. Group replication statistics are also available.
  • Queries: A detailed list of all the queries will be displayed based on the CPU execution time.
  • Sessions: Get the activity status of sessions in the MySQL server along with their thread command, associated query, CPU execution time statistics, and more.
  • Variable: A complete inventory of all the variables can be viewed within the MySQL monitor dashboard at a glance.

MySQL monitoring capabilities

Find and fix slow MySQL queries

Given the enormous amount of queries processed by a MySQL server, and how sometimes some critical queries can lead to unusual memory usage and processor time, it's essential to track the performance of certain important queries running in the database.

List of MySQL database performance
In-depth analysis of MySQL queries

Applications Manager has a MySQL query monitoring functionality that helps you track the health and execution stats of a set of specific queries that are critical to optimal database performance. Associate alarms to these queries and get instantly notified if any MySQL query violates the given threshold.

Ensure high availability of databases with MySQL replication monitoring

Replication is the process of copying and distributing database files from one database to another and synchronizing between databases to maintain consistency. Monitoring MySQL database replication parameters are important to keep a constant check on the replication process and detect any possible irregularities in the database behavior.

MySQL Slave and Master replication statistics

Applications Manager functions as a MySQL replication monitoring tool that enables you to keep check on the latency of data and notify delays in the synchronization of data among the database servers based on the type of replication topology employed in those MySQL servers.

Trace MySQL queries using APM

You can make use of Applications Manager's application performance monitoring (APM) capabilities and easily set up Applications Manager to trace requests to MySQL within your Java, .NET, Ruby on Rails, node.js or PHP applications. You can then check the APM dashboard for details about the traced queries, such as the execution time, parameters, and related code paths. This provides you visibility into the performance of your MySQL database and identify any slow or problematic queries, and optimize them accordingly.

Use machine learning to predict MySQL performance

Monitoring MySQL with performance metrics alone is not ideal as it is equally important to analyze the historical performance trends of your MySQL database. Our MySQL performance monitor enables you to compare performance reports of your database servers from the past and prognosticate future performance trends. The ML-powered forecast reports enable you to predict future growth and utilization of your MySQL database and plan resource upgradation and load distribution accordingly.
