sar-sql: The Script Formerly Known as MySAR
+2 Vote Up -2Vote Down

As pointed out by Schlomi Noach on my last blog, MySAR was already taken by a project related to Squid reports with MySQL. I decided then to look for a new name, and as I posted initially, I want to keep the sar prefix to describe the script’s purpose by association with the OS utility of the same name.

Why a New Utility?

A couple of months back, Tim Procter, Sheeri Cabral and I were discussing about how best to diagnose a MySQL server and/or tune its performance, automating the process as much as possible. The Performance Advisors from MySQL Enterprise (http://www.mysql.com/products/enterprise/) do this, but most of our customers don’t have a subscription and Pythian’s collective experience is not necessary reflected by its rules.

In our daily work, we have used Major Heyden’s MySQL Tuner, Mark Leith’s Statpack and our own tools to review a MySQL server configuration parameters. However, all of these tools had limitations in regards of what we wanted to achieve. Our major
