Foglight for MySQL
Foglight for MySQL ensures the health of your MySQL database environment 02:10
Your organization implemented MySQL because it’s a cost-effective, stable and scalable database option. However, introducing open source technology into your enterprise database can challenge DBAs like you to realize the benefits and cost savings that the platform can provide. What if you could proactively manage the health of your MySQL infrastructure while helping your organization realize the cost efficiency of leveraging open source databases? What if you could do this without sacrificing your ability to monitor and diagnose problems? Foglight® for MySQL addresses these and broader cross-platform needs. Make your job easier while you ensure the health and performance of your entire database environment.


Global view

Review key health and performance metrics across all your monitored database instances from a single dashboard. Quickly identify the most critical alarms so you can immediately take action to resolve performance issues on your MySQL databases and their underlying hosts.

Lock analysis

Resolve MySQL concurrency issues in record time with historical reviews of lock and deadlock issues.


Visualize even the most complex replication environments, whether one-to-one or one-to-many. Receive alerts when replication breaks or lags.

Workload analysis and statement digests

Understand query performance with a complete breakdown of resource consumption, wait and lock times, row counts, and more using the SQL Performance Investigator (SQL PI) component of Foglight for MySQL. 

Component visualization

Visualize the performance of critical server components and the underlying host. An interactive dashboard displays high-level server components and the flow of information between them, and alerts you when components operate outside normal ranges.

Table visualization

Visualize all tables for all your MySQL databases on a single screen, with table health and basic properties.

Server metrics

Understand server performance by category. Quickly identify issues affecting server components, and drill down to details for fast resolution.

InnoDB performance

Track performance indicators for InnoDB so you can allocate the correct amount of memory to your buffer pool, know if queries are waiting to enter InnoDB, understand how transactions affect InnoDB performance and more.

Centralized administration

Easily administer a large or distributed environment by managing connections, tables, flushes and resets centrally from any connected server. Ensure accountability with logs of all actions.

Intelligent alerting

Avoid false alerts with adaptive Intelliprofile thresholds, which ensure alarms are only triggered when baselines are breached. Easily manage and annotate alarms, including scheduling blackouts for maintenance periods.

Enterprise-scale monitoring

Monitor hundreds of MySQL servers from a single management server.

Low overhead

Execute data collection through remote agents that ensure minimal overhead (no more than 2% CPU) is added to monitored database instances.

High granularity

Ensure high-integrity data collection with frequent collections, or customize collection frequency to meet your business requirements.

Embedded repository

Store historical monitoring data in the embedded data warehouse — without needing to purchase or install additional database instances for storage of monitoring data. External repositories can be leveraged in larger deployments.
