Monitoring MySQL with OpenTSDB

23 April 11:30am - 12:20pm @ Ballroom B

A monitoring system is arguably the most crucial system to have in place when administering and tweaking the performance of any database system. DBAs also find themselves with a variety of monitoring systems and plugins to use; ranging from small scripts in cron to complex data collection systems. In this talk, I’ll discuss how Box made a shift from the Cacti monitoring system and other various shell scripts to OpenTSDB and the changes made to our servers and daily interaction with monitoring to increase our agility in identifying and addressing changes in database behavior.
