  1. Great work and thanks for sharing. Rumor has it you use the Information Schema to export the output from the monitoring rather than SHOW {TABLE,USER,INDEX}_STATISTICS. That sounds great. We are still in a MySQL 4.0 mindset and don’t know much about the Information Schema.

    We just added support to rotate the slow query log. And we are trying to add SHOW CLIENT_STATISTICS that will aggregate resource consumption by client IP. That should be out in a patch soon.

    But in general generic RPMs also should work.

    We are not using INFORMATION_SCHEMA yet, but working on this patch right now.
