MySQL Monitoring

MySQL monitoring is fast and easy to setup with OpsDash. OpsDash makes it easy to monitor your MySQL servers, including replication at both master and slave instance sides. OpsDash dashboards come pre-configured, setup to monitor the most common MySQL metrics. No messing around with individual metrics, figuring out which of them are important, no editing graph templates. This means that you can start monitoring your MySQL instance right away, since it takes just a couple minutes to setup OpsDash monitoring.

Here’s how OpsDash’s curated dashboards come out of the box:

You can go from 0 to this in just a minute or two! Typically, all that’s needed to ensure effective monitoring is to observe the data for a while and set alerts to notify you via Email, Slack, HipChat or PagerDuty if things go wrong.

If your setup requires that you monitor some additional metrics, that’s easy to. You can add and delete metrics and customize your MySQL monitoring setup to meet any unique monitoring needs you may have.
