MariaDB Monitoring

MariaDB (created by the original developers of MySQL) is one of the most popular database servers in the world and turns data into structured information for a wide variety of applications. Popular as ever since its first release as an alternative to MySQL, it is important to monitor all of your systems using MariaDB to make sure they are always at top performance.

What You Can Monitor

By monitoring over 39 performance metrics, including connects, sessions, hits and free blocks, Opsview helps IT teams ensure that their MariaDB databases are at top performance. With our MariaDB monitoring, IT teams will be able to monitor all of the storage engines, plugins, and other tools within its robust environment. Here are a few specific benefits:

  • Performance Metrics: Provides a wide variety of performance metrics that allows you to make sure your database is running at full speed, enabling you to monitor any performance changes in your environment over a period of time

  • Clear Graphing and Reporting: Shows exactly what the database is doing and measures its performance over time via graphs that pinpoint insights that are easy to analyze

  • Notifications: The new MariaDB Opspack combined with Opsview Monitor’s many notification integrations will make sure you get the right alerts to the right people at the right time
