MySQL Performance Monitoring


MySQL is an RDBMS (Relational Database Management System) that is popular with open-source CMSs (Content Management Systems) and large websites and applications like Facebook, YouTube, Flickr, and Twitter. MySQL is one of the key parts of the open-source LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP/Perl/Python) software stack, which WordPress, Drupal, Joomla!, and other popular CMSs use. MySQL is available as an open-source framework called "MySQL Community Server" and as part of a commercial, enterprise solution, such as Oracle’s MySQL Enterprise Server. In addition to open-source functionalities, the enterprise versions of MySQL provide paid users with commercial plugins, technical support, and related solutions to tackle issues such as performance, security, and regulatory compliance.


The AppDynamics Database Monitoring product module for MySQL is a comprehensive 24x7 deep-dive tool used to monitor any version of MySQL databases of running on any platform, including Percona and MariaDB.
