Advantages of MySQL


MySQL has the largest market share among all open source databases. Hence, there is no shortage of books, articles and support on MySQL. Compared to other databases, setting up and administering MySQL is easy. Tools such as MySQL Administrator are available to get you started. One of the biggest advantages of MySQL: lightning fast speed! Thanks to its simple structure, MySQL demonstrates extreme efficiency in terms of resource consumption and almost does not use memory.


MySQL Performance: The Foundation for a Number of Other Services

If your database is very slow, returns errors in response to some queries, or is not available at all, the performance and quality of all applications that depend on that database will suffer. To ensure consistent and fastest availability of applications, it is necessary to monitor MySQL databases. Thus, by optimizing the performance of the database, you create the basis for the availability and performance of all your services at different levels.

What makes PRTG a full-fledged MySQL monitoring tool

If your website, online store or web application uses a MySQL database and the work of this database is disrupted, the site itself will suffer: it may not display correctly, some parts of it may not be available, or the site may not load at all.

PRTG allows you to continuously monitor the availability of your MySQL database. With PRTG, you’ll reduce database downtime and respond immediately to database outages. The result will be increased customer satisfaction and increased employee productivity.

PAESSLER’s comprehensive MySQL monitoring tool monitors not only database availability, but also other MySQL performance data. To do this, PRTG automatically polls the databases and measures the time it takes to establish a connection, execute a SQL query, process a transaction, and disconnect a connection. The PRTG dashboard displays clear statistics on the total query time.

PRTG also allows you to track specific datasets from a MySQL database. You can, for example, get some information from an online store or a database of applications. To do this, simply set your own SQL queries in the PRTG application and keep track of the values they return.

In addition to the return values, PRTG will show the execution time of the query and the number of rows surveyed in the data tables. Using configurable thresholds, you can trigger automatic alerts and receive notifications, for example, when the inventory of a particular product in the online store is about to run out.

One of the many useful features of PRTG is the creation of custom reports. You can customize the contents of reports in any way you want, and then call up reports on the fly or generate them automatically (daily, weekly, or monthly) and then send them, for example, by e-mail.

PRTG allows you to create reports with all the data that is important to your work. The reporting feature is also an ideal way to provide up-to-date information to colleagues and superiors. Simply select the relevant information and the reports will be automatically sent to the appropriate managers. For example, you can redirect the most important website statistics to the marketing team or automatically send the number of open tickets to support.

PRTG for MySQL monitoring has an alarm function. If the database is unavailable, or if some queries do not return the required (or incorrect) values, you can configure PRTG to receive automatic notifications about this situation.

The alert can be in the form of an email, SMS or push notification to a smartphone. You will be informed in a timely manner, before the problem escalates. With the PRTG API, you can also create custom notifications and automatically execute scripts or HTTP actions.

Enjoy the feeling of complete control with PRTG!
