What’s a high-performance website worth without high-performance monitoring? Librato’s built-in, intuitive dashboard has everything you need to keep your MySQL infrastructure in check.

As an operations engineer or developer in charge of MySQL, you need to worry about many things. Librato takes the burden off by allowing you to monitor uptime, connection statistics and query throughput to ensure MySQL is up and running. You can monitor memory pressure and I/O activity, visualize slow queries, deadlocks and locking contention, and highlight resource shortages or application issues. Monitoring query cache activity and usage will ensure queries are executing as efficiently as possible. Tracking the frequency of different SQL commands will allow you to detect changes in application behavior. You will also want to look out for inefficient scans, joins and sorts which can severely impair database performance. In fact, with Librato, you can monitor any metric essential to the health of your app.

Key MySQL Metrics

Detect changes in application behavior by effortlessly tracking the frequency of different SQL commands.

Category Metric Name Description
Availability Server uptime, connection statistics, database reads and writes, and network statistics. Metrics that provide visibility into MySQL’s availability and health.
Disk I/O OS reads, writes and fsyncs, and log writes. Metrics that signal disk I/O contention or hardware issues.
Inefficient queries Slow queries, select and sort statistics. Metrics that indicate that there are inefficient queries that need to be optimized.
Locking behavior Deadlocks, lock and semaphore statistics. Metrics that highlight resource contention between SQL queries.
Query Cache Number of hits, prunes and inserts, and free memory. Metrics that monitor query cache activity and overall efficiency.
InnoDB Buffer Pool Free, dirty and used pages, pages read, written and created, and buffer pool waits. Metrics that highlight how efficiently InnoDB caches data and indexes in memory, and enable performance tuning.
Commands and Handler operations Number of selects, updates, inserts and deletes Metrics that record the number of MySQL commands and calls to the storage engine.
Thread Cache Connected, cached and running threads. Metrics that track the size of the Thread Cache and number of threads of each type.
