How SendGrid Ships Better Code Faster with VividCortex

VividCortex CEO Baron Schwartz and SendGrid DBA Silvia Botros teamed up to discuss how performance monitoring leads to better, faster code deployment. This 30-minute webinar covers: 

  • How developers can deploy code faster and more safely.
  • A close-up view of a health- and monitoring-focused work environment.
  • How database monitoring fits into a culture of DevOps and lean, agile development. 

"Now, with VividCortex, whenever we have an issue that's impacting the mail processing throughput, we can very quickly go and answer, "What was running at that time? What was the most expensive query? What was taking up all the load?" Within an hour, we can typically figure out exactly which JIRA WAR to go to."  —Silvia Botros, Lead MySQL DBA

Reading Amazon RDS MySQL/Aurora log file from terminal.

Introduction:

At Mydbops we support a good number of clients on AWS cloud (Aurora and RDS).

Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) is providing the cloud based database service. It is the cost-efficient, resize able & ease to manage. As in any other DBaaS, If you need to analyse the log files (Error log / Slow log), you need to login the console and manually download the files.

Logging into the console seems simple, But this is a bit complex operation when it comes to incorporate that in a day to day operation and automation. In this blog i would like to share my experience in making this into a straightforward process for downloading the log files directly from command line without console GUI.

Prerequisites:

Following tools are to be installed for this operation.

Announcement: p99 Percentile Metrics

I’m pleased to announce that VividCortex now offers 99th percentile metrics to help understand latency outliers in a query workload. These metrics provide visibility beyond the average latency, help identify the worst outliers, and improve focus on the customer experience. They are offered for all of the databases we currently support when using On-Host monitoring.

What You'll See

Latency percentile metrics are one of our most popular feature requests, so we know this will make a lot of you very happy! We actually started collecting these metrics some time ago; you’ll have p99 latency metrics for the last couple of months if you look back at your historical metrics. These metrics are captured globally for an environment, per-query, per-database, per-user, per-verb, per-caller and per-custom-query-tag.

Why Did We Choose to Implement This? 

It is extremely useful for a lot of reasons. Averages can be …

Catching Slow and Frequent Queries with ProxySQL

In this blog post,  I’ll look at how to catch slow and frequent queries with ProxySQL.

More and more people are using ProxySQL because it is a great tool and it can help DBAs a lot. But many people do not realize that it is more powerful than it looks. It has many features and possibilities. I am going to show you one of my favorite “tricks” / use cases.

There are plenty of blog posts explaining how ProxySQL works. I am not going to that again. Instead, let’s jump straight to the point. There is a table in ProxySQL called “stats.stats_mysql_query_digest”. It is one of my favorite tables because it basically records all the queries that were running against ProxySQL. Without collecting any queries on the MySQL server, I can find …
