MySQL replication monitoring on Ubuntu 10.04 with Nagios and NRPE
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

If you're using MySQL replication, then you're probably counting on it for some fairly important need. Monitoring via something like Nagios is generally considered a best practice. This article assumes you've already got your Nagios server setup and your intention is to add a Ubuntu 10.04 NRPE client. This article also assumes the Ubuntu 10.04 NRPE client is your MySQL replication master, not the slave. The OS of the slave does not matter.

Getting the Nagios NRPE client setup on Ubuntu 10.04

At first it wasn't clear what packages would be appropriate packages to install. I was initially misled by the naming of the nrpe package, but I …

+6 Vote Up -1Vote Down

Regardless of the monitoring tool you use to monitor your databases, it can be better to monitor this tool.
No, it’s not a joke ! Do you think you can have a benefit with a monitoring tool not connected to your servers ? ( without being alerted )

I choose to talk about MONyog here but this can apply to all existing monitoring tools.
I just want to share the message, the tool does not matter, so, do it !

So, let me explain how to control if you have fresh data with MONyog.
With MONyog it’s easy because it’s an agentless monitoring tool.

There are two ways to check that :

Announcing common_schema: common views & routines for MySQL
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Today I have released common_schema, a utility schema for MySQL which includes many views and functions, and is aimed to be installed on any MySQL server.

What does it do?

There are views answering for all sorts of useful information: stuff related to schema analysis, data dimensions, monitoring, processes & transactions, security, internals... There are basic functions answering for common needs.

Some of the views/routines simply formalize those queries we tend to write over and over again. Others take the place of external tools, …

I bring this up because of recent conversations I have found myself in.

Over the years I have gone back and forth between OSX & Linux laptops. Over these same years I was also monitoring several MySQL databases. I have found numerous server side solutions for you to be able to monitor your database, Nagios and of course MySQL Enterprise Monitor to list a couple. Both of these are great solutions and allow you to try and get some sleep and night.
Years …

Refactored again: poor man's MySQL replicator monitor
+3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I saw that both Haidong Ji and Geert VanderKelen have proposed a Python monitor for MySQL replication, calling it the "poor man's version".
See Poor man’s MySQL replication monitoring and Geert's Refactored: Poor man’s MySQL replication monitoring.
Having Python in your server doesn't really qualify as "poor man". In many cases it's a luxury, and thus, here's my shot at the problem, using a Bash shell script.
Unlike its Python-based competition, this …

In a project Severalnines is engaged in, we are developing a realtime application based on Cluster/J. To start with, I must say cluster/j is fantastic and so far I am very happy with it and beaten our expectations big time. It is quite new however and we stumbled on a couple of issues, but those were fixed very fast by the Cluster/J developers. The bugs we encountered were:
