MySQL Performance Tuning and Monitoring Scripts

Performance Tuning Tools
    1. MySQLTuner: a script written in Perl that will assist you with your MySQL configuration and make recommendations for increased performance and stability.

      wget -O

      Advanced Usage :
      Minimal usage remotely
      perl --host targetDNS_IP --user admin_user --pass admin_password
      Usage: Enable maximum output information around MySQL/MariaDb without debugging
      perl --verbose
      perl --buffers --dbstat --idxstat --sysstat --pfstat
      Usage: Enable CVE vulnerabilities check for your MariaDB or MySQL version
      perl --cvefile=vulnerabilities.csv
      Usage: Write your result in a file with information displayed
      perl --outputfile /tmp/result_mysqltuner.txt
      Usage: Write your result in a file without outputting information
      perl --silent --outputfile /tmp/result_mysqltuner.txt
      Usage: Using template model to customize your reporting file based on Text::Template syntax.
      perl --silent --reportfile /tmp/result_mysqltuner.txt --template=/tmp/mymodel.tmpl
      Usage: Enable debugging information
      perl --debug

    2. MySQL Tuning Primer Script - - This script takes information from "SHOW STATUS LIKE..." and "SHOW VARIABLES LIKE..." then attempts to produce some recommendations for tuning server variables.

      Currently it handles recomendations for the following:

        • Slow Query Log
        • Innodb Status
        • Max Connections
        • Worker Threads
        • Key Buffer
        • Query Cache
        • Sort Buffer
        • Joins
        • Temp Tables
        • Table (Open & Definition) Cache
        • Table Locking
        • Table Scans (read_buffer)

    3. mysqlreport: makes a friendly report of important MySQL status values. mysqlreport transforms the values from SHOW STATUS into an easy-to-read report that provides an in-depth understanding of how well MySQL is running. mysqlreport is a better alternative (and practically the only alternative) to manually interpreting SHOW STATUS.

    4. phpMyAdmin Advisor : This tool is very similar to the tuning-primer tool. Nice and fast, and likely the most up-to-date tool.

Percona Tools for MySQL : Free online productivity tools for MySQL DBAs, SysAdmins and Developers

  1. mytop - a top clone for MySQL.

  2. innotop: you can download the latest version of innotop from Sourceforge.
  3. phpMyAdmin Monitor :
