Improved Performance

  • MySQL Enterprise Monitor 2.2 provides enhancements for collecting, searching and viewing query performance data, allowing developers to filter and analyze patterns that may hinder key system resources. New features include:
    • Query Analyzer Execution Notices - pinpoint problem queries allowing DBAs and developers to quickly find and fix performance problems;

    • User and Security Model - integrates with existing LDAP authentication and commonly accepted security models.
    • Integration with MySQL Support - eliminates the time DBAs spend scrutinizing the most common diagnostics needed to resolve issues.
    • Advisor Rules and Graphs - give developers increased visibility and management for all of their MySQL servers and enables them to implement best-practices related to administration, upgrades, schema performance, and security.
    • Usability Enhancements - allow DBAs to spend more time monitoring and tuning applications and databases and less time managing and administering the tools themselves.
