Ensure optimal database performance by delivering comprehensive database, storage and virtualization monitoring, plus advanced workload analytics with Foglight for MySQL. Quickly and easily detect, diagnose and resolve performance issues — wherever, whenever and however they occur.
Intuitive, web-based dashboards alert you to emerging issues that might affect performance or availability. Gaining a clear, enterprise-wide view helps you optimize performance, availability, storage, reads and writes, and latency across all your physical, virtual and cloud-based MySQL database servers. Foglight for MySQL deploys quickly and easily, too.
Review key health and performance metrics across all your monitored database instances from a single dashboard. Quickly identify the most critical alarms so you can immediately take action to resolve performance issues on your MySQL databases and their underlying hosts.
Drill into every dimension of your data, including users, connections, SQL and sessions. A derived workload metric tells you how much work your server is performing for comparison to other MySQL servers.
See all changes made to the server configuration in any given time period — even through server restarts — and determine the impact of each change on performance.
Easily spot and correct discrepancies by comparing database server configurations against your templates.
Resolve MySQL concurrency issues in record time with historical reviews of lock and deadlock issues.
Visualize even the most complex replication environments, whether one-to-one or one-to-many. Receive alerts when replication breaks or lags.
Understand query performance with a complete breakdown of resource consumption, wait and lock times, exceptions and row counts. Compare the performance of similar queries across your MySQL servers, and see full explain plans. See how workload is affected when specific statements are executed.
Visualize the performance of critical server components and the underlying host. An interactive dashboard displays high-level server components and the flow of information between them, and alerts you when components operate outside normal ranges.
Visualize all tables for all your MySQL databases on a single screen, with table health and basic properties.
Understand server performance by category. Quickly identify issues affecting server components, and drill down to details for fast resolution.
Track performance indicators for InnoDB so you can allocate the correct amount of memory to your buffer pool, know if queries are waiting to enter InnoDB, understand how transactions affect InnoDB performance and more.
Easily administer a large or distributed environment by managing connections, tables, flushes and resets centrally from any connected server. Ensure accountability with logs of all actions.
Avoid false alerts with adaptive Intelliprofile thresholds, which ensure alarms are only triggered when baselines are breached. Easily manage and annotate alarms, including scheduling blackouts for maintenance periods.
Monitor hundreds of MySQL servers from a single management server.
Execute data collection through remote agents that ensure minimal overhead (no more than 2% CPU) is added to monitored database instances.
Ensure high-integrity data collection with frequent collections, or customize collection frequency to meet your business requirements.
Store historical monitoring data in the embedded data warehouse — without needing to purchase or install additional database instances for storage of monitoring data. External repositories can be leveraged in larger deployments.
This technical brief outlines the top five complications faced by DBAs amid the rush of new database technologies in recent years. For each challenge it provides background, context and the benefits Foglight for Databases brings in addressing them.
To gain insight into the evolving challenges for DBAs, Quest commissioned DBTA to survey DBAs and those responsible for the management of the corporate data management infrastructure. The results are in and the thought-provoking findings are now available
Databases evolve fast and smart database administrators (DBAs) evolve even faster. As the landscape shifts from reliance on relational database management systems (RDBMS) to public-cloud Database as a Service (DBaaS), so do the responsibilities of the DBA
Research reveals how continued data growth, evolving responsibilities and cloud technology are affecting DBAs.
