MySQL database performance directly impacts overall application performance. To ensure that MySQL databases remain performant, MySQL monitoring tools can be deployed to capture performance data for analysis. Any anomalies in performance can be detected using these tools and mitigated before they affect user experience negatively.
Database performance monitoring tools such as those for monitoring MySQL, Oracle, and SQL Server enable organizations to run their databases optimally and meet SLA requirements for critical applications. These tools as well as application and network monitoring tools are invaluable assets for ensuring application reliability and a positive user experience for customers.
Dynatrace offers robust and comprehensive functionality for monitoring many database types including MySQL. Dynatrace’s MySQL monitoring tools enable you to capture MySQL performance metrics such as response time for each database statement and host health. Dynatrace MySQL profiling drills down to the database statement level to capture the performance of each statement and automatically identifies expensive statements that read a large quantity of data during each query.
Each statement’s metrics are displayed clearly in Dynatrace’s graphical dashboard. These metrics include response, execution, and total times, and the number of rows returned. Many DB monitoring tools do not return the same level of detail as Dynatrace’s MySQL monitoring tools leaving you with vital gaps in performance monitoring.
Using Dynatrace to monitor your MySQL database enables you to capture detailed metrics to analyze MySQL performance effectively. Any database bottlenecks can be quickly identified and fixed. Moreover, for MySQL databases running in VMware virtual environments, Dynatrace’s VMware performance tools enable monitoring of the virtual machines running these databases capturing vital data that contributes to full gap-free performance monitoring.
Dynatrace’s turnkey digital performance management solutions provide end-to-end transaction performance monitoring. Patented PurePath Technology® from Dynatrace provides application transaction and system performance monitoring from user interactions through application middle tiers to infrastructure and database tiers. The performance of all components and services participating in each transaction is captured by Dynatrace together with transactional context.
Applications that access MySQL databases can benefit from Dynatrace’s MySQL monitoring tools to capture MySQL performance for application transactions. Each query to your MySQL databases from your applications is monitored within the context of the associated business transactions. You can see and analyze how much time database queries contribute to overall application transaction performance as well as the content of each database statement. With performance data captured by MySQL monitoring tools, you can analyze and optimize the key transactions that drive conversions and revenue for your business.
