Let’s look at some stats!

CPU Usage

We can see an approximate 5x and 8x reduction of CPU usage on these two PMM Servers. Depending on the workload, we see CPU usage reductions to range between 3x and 10x.

Disk Writes

Why Analyze Raw MySQL Query Logs?

In this blog post, I’ll examine when looking at raw MySQL query logs can be more useful than working with tools that only have summary data.

In my previous blog post, I wrote about analyzing MySQL Slow Query Logs with ClickHouse and ClickTail. One of the follow-up questions I got is when do you want to do that compared to just using tools like Percona Monitoring and Management or VividCortex, which provide a beautiful interface for detailed analyses (rather than spartan SQL interface).
