Until recently, VividCortex was still in the process of building some important support mechanisms for Amazon RDS. RDS is an extremely powerful database service, and for some purposes it requires its own, unique tooling. We needed to find a way to provide important operating system metrics, which are normally very useful in an environment and allow us to understand how a database interacts with available resources.

 

With our recent integration of CloudWatch, all of that changes. We’re now able to pull in all metrics regarding a database …

(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:

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

scrape_configs:
  - job_name: mysql
    scheme: http
    target_groups:
    - targets: 
        - '10.17.148.31:9104'
      labels:
        zone: mysql

Every minute Prometheus …
