Monitoring tools offer alerts based on thresholds and time-series charts of status counters, but they do not tell us what we should monitor. On Tuesday, February 10th at 2 PM EST, Baron Schwartz will discuss the guiding principles needed to answer these questions.
The following questions will be answered:
- What status counters from MySQL are central and core, and which are peripheral?
- What is the meaning of MySQL status metrics?
- Which subsystems inside MySQL are the most common causes of problems in production?
- What is the unit of work-getting-done in MySQL, and how can you measure it?
- Which open-source tools do a good job at monitoring in the way we recommend at VividCortex?
- Which new and/or popular open-source tools should you evaluate when choosing a solution?
