What is mysql

What is MySQL?

MySQL is an open-source relational database management system (RDBMS) known for its speed, reliability, and ease of use. It's a critical component in many web applications and software systems, serving as a data storage and retrieval system that organizes information in structured tables. MySQL uses a language called SQL (Structured Query Language) for managing and querying data, making it a popular choice for businesses and developers to store and manage their data efficiently.

      • Queries and Questions rates
      • Connections and total network traffic
      • Disk space and memory usages
      • Queries in cache, queries not cached, hits and inserts
      • InnoDB buffer pool hit ratio
      • Commands

      Correlate MySQL Metrics and Logs for Faster Troubleshooting

      MySQL integration captures both MySQL metrics and MySQL logs. Both come with out of the box dashboards and alert rules. Moreover, MySQL metrics and logs can be correlated using Split Screen to cut troubleshooting time in half.

      • General logs display connect and disconnect events, as well as SQL statement events from clients. If you suspect an error in a client, you can precisely determine what the client sent to the MySQL instance by examining the general query log.
      • Slow queries that affect database performance and overall server performance.
      • InnoDB storage engine logs: Gain deep insights into your storage engine's behavior to ensure optimal usage of resources.
      • Server error logs: Detect and troubleshoot critical errors to ensure seamless operations.
      • Detect and investigate security related events from MySQL Enterprise Audit logs.
      • Breakdown of statements and top operations per user and host from MySQL Enterprise Audit logs.

        Just looking at the default graphs it was clear I can reduce my serverless resource usage on Vercel by 90%, by reducing the allocated memory. Sematext simply turns your logs in actionable data, out of the box. Costs, performance, it's all there

        We looked into running our own Elastic Stack, and quickly realized that was a job and specialty within itself. We are a small startup and every dollar counts. Wasting precious and expensive sysadmin time on managing things far out of our project scope really isn’t an option
