MySQL 5.7 Introduces a JSON Data Type
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

There's a new JSON data type available in MySQL 5.7 that I've been playing with. I wanted to share some examples of when it's useful to have JSON data in your MySQL database and how to work with the new data types (not least so I can refer back to them later!)

(MySQL) Performance Monitoring with Prometheus [UPDATE]
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

In my last I was looking for a way to do performance monitoring and I stumbled upon Prometheus. Prometheus is much more than monitoring a single node service. Anyway let’s get the idea of gathering metrics using MySQL as example.

This how a simple configuration of Prometheus could look like:

  scrape_interval: 1m
  scrape_timeout: 10s
  evaluation_interval: 1m

  - job_name: mysql
    scheme: http
    - targets: 
        - ''
