Connects and monitors MySQL on any platform

Connects and monitors MySQL on any platform

Monyog is a monitoring and advisory tool for the MySQL database server. Monyog installs as a service/daemon and queries the MySQL servers that it is configured to connect to. The queries that it sends are not queries about data stored on the server, but queries about the server itself (its configuration, the memory space, what the server itself has recorded about its own 'history' etc.). Monyog retrieves that information, organizes it, calculates on it and displays resulting 'metrics' about the server performance.

Monyog will connect to MySQL servers running on any platform - no matter if these servers are official MySQL binaries, builds distributed with an Operating system (like a Linux distribution) or if the server has been compiled on the computer where it runs. This is possible because Monyog has been compiled with the MySQL C-API. It communicates with the server using the MySQL client/server protocol directly - no 'abstraction layer' (like ODBC, JDBC, ADO/.NET) is involved. Not only will this ensure that connection is always possible, it is also the most efficient way of communicating between a MySQL server and client.

As Monyog connects remotely to a MySQL server, there is no dependency on the platform on which MySQL is installed. Monyog can be installed in a Windows or Linux machine (32-bit compatibility) and can connect to the target MySQL remotely to get statistics.
