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 – …

Monyog MySQL Monitor v8.5.0: Introducing Audit Log Analysis

Changes as compared to Monyog MySQL Monitor v8.4.1 include:

This release fixes a few minor bugs only and implements a number of user requests.

Preview: Top MySQL 8 Features

Although there is no official software release for MySQL 8.0 as of yet, most insiders believe that it’s likely to arrive sometime in 2018.  In the meantime, Oracle has officially announced a tantalizing list of over two hundred new features!   We recently covered Replication Performance Enhancements.  Today’s blog will cover some of the other exciting enhancements we can expect when the production release of MySQL 8 hits the market.

New Database Roles

A role is a named collection of privileges that define what a user can and cannot do within a database. Roles play a vital part of database security by limiting who can connect to the server, access the database, or even access individual database objects and data.

Although prior to version 8, MySQL did provide a set of Privileges and Administrative Roles, the up-coming release will also support a set of flexible and properly …

Top Performance Metrics to Monitor on MySQL

As tables increase in size and more and more users come online, it becomes increasingly necessary to fine-tune your database server from time to time. The secret to knowing what adjustments need to be made is to perform regular monitoring. Most databases offer dozens – if not hundreds – of performance metrics that you can assess.

In the earlier blog, we showed a number of ways to determine the cause(s) of MySQL database performance issues using a couple of built-in tools. With this two blog series, we will focus on monitoring key performance metrics. In part one, we’ll:

  • examine the benefits of performance monitoring,
  • outline the main performance metric categories
  • list the monitoring tools provided by MySQL, i.e.:
    • server variables
    • the Performance Schema

Troubleshooting MySQL Performance Issues

Despite your very best efforts, as tables increase in size and more and more users come online, sluggish MySQL performance eventually rears its ugly head. When that happens, you may be tempted to shrug it off as part of doing business. Don’t. By understanding the mechanisms behind database slowdowns and by methodically attacking the problem, you can home in on the culprit(s) and remedy the issues in a timely manner, before your business suffers substantial losses as a result.

The purpose of this blog is to assist you in determining the cause(s) of MySQL database performance issues using a couple of built-in tools.

Why Database Performance Slows Down

It’s no secret that database performance tends to degrade over time. While it’s easy to point the finger at the number of concurrent users, table scans, and growing tables, the reality is more complex than that. The most common reason for slow database performance is …

Monitoring MySQL Problematic Queries

This blog describes how to identify queries that cause a sudden spike in system resources as well as the user and host who executed the culprit query using the Monyog MySQL Monitor and Advisor.

How many times have you seen a system go live and perform much worse than it did in testing? There could be several reasons behind bad performance. For instance, a slow running query in MySQL can be caused by a poor database design or may be due to higher-than-normal latency in network communication. Other issues such as using too few or too many indexes may also be a factor. This blog will identify the types of poorly performing queries and outline some concrete strategies for identifying them using monitoring. Finally, some tips for improving performance will be presented.

The Effects of Misbehaving Queries

Typically, misbehaving queries will result in two possible outcomes: high CPU usage and/or slow execution. The two …
