Monitoring MySQL and effectively managing it can be challenging. Identifying issues before they grow into performance problems that impact end users can be crucial. Knowing which tools to use, which key metrics to monitor, and how to resolve issues can be enormously important. When considering these facts, we at Percona decided to take steps to provide our Support customers with the tools, alerts, and advice they need to have higher performing, more secure, and easier to manage MySQL deployments.
I am pleased to announce that Percona now provides our Gold and Platinum Percona Support for MySQL customers with the enterprise grade tools and advice they need for better performance, fewer database issues, and effective monitoring of MySQL. We have partnered with Webyog to provide our customers with MONyog Ultimate Edition, the leading MySQL monitoring and management tool. We then improve upon MONyog by providing Percona Advisors which provide MONyog users with best practices for monitoring MySQL and resolving performance issues. Percona Advisors combined with MONyog provides visibility into problems before they impact end user experience and it also provides guidance with links to relevant technical information on resolving issues quickly and effectively.
Percona Advisors is an installable set of rules, alerts, and recommended actions for MONyog. They capture the accumulated MySQL operational knowledge and insight of our Percona Support, Consulting, and Remote DBA teams. Percona Advisors modify the standard MONyog dashboard to highlight the most important performance metrics with alerts for when metrics fall outside of recommended limits. Percona Advisors is an ever-evolving solution with regular updates planned to incorporate additional best practices and guidance on issue resolution over time, as MySQL best practices continue to evolve.
I am giving a webinar entitled “Monitoring MySQL with MONyog” on Wednesday, March 19, 2014 at 10:00 am Pacific Daylight Time to introduce this new solution. I will provide information on MONyog and how to create alerts which will make MySQL administration easier. I will also show how to leverage MONyog to understand trends, create alerts, and use other features to monitor performance and troubleshoot the source of issues. I hope you will join me then.
