MySQL is a popular database that has evolved to run numerous large-scale, high-profile websites. To measure the performance of MySQL databases, database monitoring tools such as MySQL profiling tools are often used. These tools enable you to obtain granular MySQL performance metrics such as CPU and memory resource utilization to help to you understand how well each database is running and whether it is slowing down the applications that query it. Metrics collected by MySQL profiling tools allow you identify any performance issues with MySQL and provide actionable data to help you to solve these issues as well as to tune and optimize your MySQL database. When used with application monitor tools, you can troubleshoot performance problems across application and database tiers.
