The MySQL Enterprise Monitor serves as an automated assistant for MySQL database administrators. This service is designed to help administrators with their day-to-day tasks by monitoring MySQL servers and identifying potential problems. These features are designed to save the database administrator's time and effort by providing the information you need through a simplified interface.
An extension of existing MySQL Enterprise services, MySQL Enterprise Monitor monitors enterprise database environments and provides expert advice on how customers can tighten security and optimize the performance and uptime of their MySQL servers.
MySQL Enterprise Monitor helps administrators:
Intelligently stay up to date with releases and bug fixes
Know what's going on with their system
Manage day-to-day database maintenance tasks
Improve the performance of their system
Manage and prevent crises
The MySQL Enterprise Monitor was designed to tackle the job of managing the performance of any number of MySQL database servers, regardless of their physical or geographical location. Although MySQL Enterprise Monitor can easily track just a handful of MySQL servers, the service is specifically designed to greatly curtail the time it takes to get a handle on the availability and performance levels of many database servers at once.
The MySQL Enterprise Monitor does this by providing an web-based interface—called the Enterprise Dashboard—that serves as the portal for viewing information about your MySQL database servers. MySQL professionals can manage all their servers by group or individually if need be.
The Enterprise Dashboard web interface does not have to be installed on individual desktops, but is instead available from a centrally located machine that serves as the main location for the Monitoring and Advisory service.
