How Monyog helps the DBA?
Monyog is designed to help companies scale their existing MySQL DBA resources by providing a single, consolidated view of health, security, performance and availability of all of their MySQL servers. It pro-actively monitors all MySQL servers using a set of predefined expert advisors, to identify and alert DBAs of problems, security vulnerabilities and tuning opportunities so they can be acted upon well in advance of a problem or outage occurring.
How fast can a DBA start monitoring MySQL servers?
The short answer is - in less than one minute. The unique architecture and low-footprint of Monyog enables DBAs to install and configure all components required for monitoring MySQL servers in less than 1 minute.
This is in sharp contrast with other Monitoring and Advisory Tools that force you to install agents, webservers, multiple language runtimes, etc. before DBAs can even start monitoring MySQL servers.
Real time Charts for Monitoring All MySQL Servers
One of the biggest challenges the MySQL DBA faces is managing an ever-growing number of MySQL servers and databases. Regardless of the size of the MySQL environment, each server requires specific attention when it comes to basic administration, security, performance monitoring and availability. To give the MySQL DBA a proactive advantage in all of these areas, Monyog provides the Charts. Using the Charts, DBAs can monitor MySQL and OS specific metrics for single or groups of servers. The Charts is designed so DBAs can easily understand the complete security, availability, and performance picture of all their MySQL servers in one place, all from a slick AJAX interface.
Unlike other monitoring tools that use annoying page-refreshes for real time graphing, Monyog uses Flash graphs to make sure that you get ''true'' real time graphs.
Real time query monitoring and log analysis
It is imperative that MySQL DBAs have complete control over the queries executing on their servers. With real time query monitoring; Monyog can notify you instantly of long running queries.
Query Analyzer feature of Monyog helps you identify problem SQL without being forced to configure your applications to connect through MySQL Proxy. While Monyog’s Query Analyzer has complete support for MySQL Proxy, Monyog can find problem SQL by parsing the Slow Query Log and/or by taking a snapshot of SHOW PROCESSLIST at regular intervals.
The Monyog Advisors - Fix problems pro-actively
Monyog supplies right out of the box, hundreds of advisors that are designed to automatically examine MySQL server’s configuration, security, and performance levels. It identifies the problems and helps tune the opportunities which also provide the MySQL DBA with specific corrective actions.
What are the Monyog Advisor Rules?
The Monyog Advisor Rules are a set of best practices that allow DBAs to implement new MySQL servers with confidence and to pro-actively manage the dynamic nature of all of their MySQL servers over time. The Monyog Advisor Rules do this by monitoring all MySQL servers and notifying the DBA with specific instructions on how to pro-actively address found exceptions to align with the best practices.
Monyog Advisor Rules - Productivity through Automation
Monyog makes MySQL DBAs more productive by allowing them to automate each of the MySQL Advisor Rules for unattended, around the clock operations. This helps minimize human errors, improves overall productivity and lowers the total cost of associated with managing MySQL.
How do DBAs receive pro-active alerts?
For all of the Advisors, Advisor Rule violations will trigger notification events, details of which can be sent to you via email. Monyog also provides expert advice on the specific problem that has been reported.
