News Facts

Continuing its investment in MySQL, Oracle today announced the immediate availability of the latest release of MySQL Enterprise, a comprehensive offering of production support, monitoring tools, and MySQL database software.
A key component of this release is MySQL Enterprise Monitor 2.2.
MySQL Enterprise Monitor 2.2 delivers enhanced query performance monitoring, improved security, and time-saving integration with MySQL Support.
MySQL Enterprise Monitor helps organizations more efficiently manage MySQL servers and helps reduce downtime by identifying problems before they become costly outages.

Improved Performance

MySQL Enterprise Monitor 2.2 provides enhancements for collecting, searching and viewing query performance data, allowing developers to filter and analyze patterns that may hinder key system resources. New features include:
Query Analyzer Execution Notices -- pinpoint problem queries allowing DBAs and developers to quickly find and fix performance problems;
MySQL Enterprise Connector Plug-ins -- plug-ins to an application’s existing Connector can allow users to gather and send SQL and related performance data to the query analyzer. In addition, users can track SQL errors and warnings; end user response times; query execution times and counts; and with a single click go directly to the offending query in the source code.

Simplified Administration, Improved Security and Integration Help Lower Costs

MySQL Enterprise Monitor 2.2 helps lower costs and improve efficiencies through GUI-based tools that continuously monitor the MySQL database and help developers implement MySQL best practices. Enhancements include:
User and Security Model -- integrates with existing LDAP authentication and commonly accepted security models.
Integration with MySQL Support -- eliminates the time DBAs spend scrutinizing the most common diagnostics needed to resolve issues.
Advisor Rules and Graphs -- give developers increased visibility and management for all of their MySQL servers and enables them to implement best-practices related to administration, upgrades, schema performance, and security.
Usability Enhancements -- allow DBAs to spend more time monitoring and tuning applications and databases and less time managing and administering the tools themselves.
