A Percona MySQL Health Audit is an in-depth review of your database master-slave pair. During a MySQL Health Audit we review, document and recommend changes to your full database server stack including hardware, schema, and queries. Our goal is to identify inefficiencies, find problems before they occur, and make sure your database is in the best condition possible to handle future load. When a MySQL Health Audit is purchased as part of a Percona Wellness Plan (Semi-Annual, Quarterly, or Monthly), we will compare previous MySQL Health Audits and help you plan for growth and make recommendations on scaling your system based on your expected growth. Contact Sales for information on building a Percona Wellness Plan for your company.

This meets most use cases. If you have more then 1 slave, you may choose which slave you would like to be reviewed with the master. If you want more then a single slave reviewed please contact sales.
