Error Logging in MySQL 8

Although only available as a Release Candidate, MySQL 8 is already proving itself to be a huge leap forward in many regards. Error logging is no exception. The MySQL development team just announced that they have redesigned the error logging subsystem to use a new component architecture.

The redesign will allow the filtering of log events, as well as the routing of error log output to multiple destinations, via the enabling of multiple sink components.  This will make it possible to send error log events to third-party systems for additional formatting and analysis.

In today’s blog, we’ll explore how to employ MySQL 8’s component-based error logging to achieve a variety of logging configurations. Note that all this is specific for MySQL 8 and is not available in earlier versions and also not in MariaDB. However, MariaDB has an option to write the error log to the system “syslog” on systemd-based Linux variants – …

Database Audit Log Monitoring for Security and Compliance

We recently conducted a webinar on Audit Log analysis for MySQL & MariaDB Databases. This blog will further provide a deep dive into the security & compliance surrounding databases.

Database auditing is the tracking of database resources utilization and authority, specifically, the monitoring and recording of user database actions. Auditing can be based on a variety of factors, including individual actions, such as the type of SQL statement executed, or on a combination of factors such as user name, application, time, etc.  Performing regular database log analysis bolsters your internal security measures by answering questions like who changed your critical data, when it was changed, and more. Database auditing also helps you comply with increasingly demanding compliance requirements.

Monitoring RDS MySQL Performance Metrics

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a cloud platform that offers a wide variety of services including computing power, database storage, content delivery and other functionality that targets businesses of all sizes. One of their database solutions includes the Amazon Relational Database Service. Amazon RDS includes a number of popular RDBMSes, including Amazon Aurora, PostgreSQL, MySQL, MariaDB, Oracle, and Microsoft SQL Server, as well as tools to manage your databases and monitor their performance.

Despite the wide range of metrics available within the Amazon RDS console, there are some very good reasons for using your own monitoring tool(s) instead or in addition to those offered by Amazon RDS. For example, familiarity with your own tool(s) or access to features that Amazon RDS does not provide would constitute two persuasive reasons for employing a local tool.

With traditional software monitoring platforms such as Monyog still enjoying …

Top Performance Metrics to Monitor on MySQL (Connections & Buffer Pool Usage)

As a DBA, your top priority is to keep your databases and dependent applications running smoothly at all times. To this end, your best weapon is judicious monitoring of key performance metrics. In a perfect world, you’d want to be up-to-date regarding every aspect of your database’s activity – i.e. how many events occurred, how big they were, precisely when they happened and how long they took.

There certainly is no shortage of tools that can monitor resource consumption, provide instantaneous status snapshots, and generate wait analysis and graphs. The challenge is that some metrics can be expensive to measure, and, perhaps even more importantly, they can require a lot of work to analyze.

The purpose of Part-2 of the blog series is to narrow down the field to those performance metrics that provide the most value for the effort as well as present some tangible ways to capture and study them. It is by tracking the most useful …
