Database Performance Monitoring for MySQL and MariaDB

SQL Diagnostic Manager for MySQL

Monitor database performance agentless and cost-effectively

  • Monitor in real-time for corrective action and issues resolution
  • Track and compare all changes to MySQL or MariaDB configuration files
  • Monitor, alert, and kill locked or long-running SQL queries in real-time
  • Monitor Amazon RDS, MariaDB, or Amazon Aurora including OS and log files
  • Find top 10 queries across MySQL/MariaDB servers based on execution time
  • Monitor Amazon RDS, Azure Database, Google Cloud SQL, and Oracle Cloud Service
Disk and Lock Monitoring

Monitor disk space and locks

Analyze disk space usage by displaying the number of databases
with their data and index sizes to see which MySQL and MariaDB
servers take up the most space. View snapshots and charts of
disk space occupied by databases on servers and tables in
databases to quickly spot the largest databases and tables.

Security Monitoring

Check security issues

Easily understand the complete security, availability, health,
and performance of all MySQL and MariaDB servers in a single,
modern, and intuitive web console. Access hundreds of monitors
that examine the configuration and security of servers automatically.
Identify and alert on security vulnerabilities and tuning opportunities
via expert advice.

Provide Access to Multiple Users

Manage multi-user access

Set up users who have limited access to specified servers and
settings. Specify the type of user, role, and allowed and disallowed
actions, tags, and tabs. Manage user access to prevent accidental
actions, executing non-reversible operations, and changing server
settings without administrator knowledge.

Flexible Dashboard with Overview

Quick overview and drilldown

Display the top level overview of all registered MySQL and
MariaDB servers. View the total number of registered servers,
the total number of disconnected servers, servers with critical alerts,
and servers with warnings. From the overview, drill down to more
detailed information to find the root cause of problems.


Monitor in real-time

Get started with real-time monitoring in a single mouse click and avoid enabling logging manually. See what MySQL and MariaDB servers are up to anytime.

Deploy agentless

Avoid installing monitoring agents on monitored servers as the architecture of the monitoring solution is agentless.

Monitor queries

Monitor slow, top slowest, and long-locked SQL queries in real-time. View details of SQL queries to investigate the cause of problems.

Detect security problems

Detect MySQL and MariaDB hacking attempts. Also, identify and fix security vulnerabilities.

Monitor replication

Monitor replication including multiple sources. Register slaves automatically. Receive alerts when replications lag or when slaves stopped.

Monitor cloud databases

Monitor managed cloud databases including Amazon RDS for MySQL/MariaDB/Aurora, Microsoft Azure Database for MySQL, Google Cloud SQL for MySQL, and Oracle MySQL Cloud Service.

Store pseudo server logs

Fetch SQL queries from MySQL and MariaDB servers using three methods.

Browse history

Record monitoring sessions by storing all historical data in the embedded repository. Later play back server activity to investigate any problems that occurred in the past.


Detect problems proactively

Keep a check on servers in real-time by providing timely alerts when something goes wrong.

Alert based on best practices

Choose from over 600 predefined monitors and advisors based on industry best practices. Modify configuration settings for greater flexibility.

Set metric thresholds

Set thresholds for each metric via JavaScript to identify warning and critical alerts for different database environments.

Notify effectively

Display alerts on Slack and PagerDuty. Integrate with Syslog. Receive alerts via email and Simple Network Management Protocol traps. Manage, accept, and dismiss events.

Alert on security issues

Alert on hacking attempts and security risks via dedicated metrics to notify relevant staff immediately.

Alert on locks and deadlocks

Detect locks, blocks, and deadlocks by monitoring the relevant metrics as compared to their thresholds.

Alert on disk problems

Observe metrics exceeding thresholds to detect issues with disk space and disk availability.


View flexible dashboard

Display unified views of all monitored servers in a single location. Create multiple dashboards and customized sets of charts.

Display parameters and metrics

Display any available settings and metrics for MySQL and MariaDB. Display cumulative and average values for data.

Analyze threads

Display the number of threads currently being executed by MySQL and MariaDB. View the process list with information on running SQL queries as per execution time.

Find and analyze problematic queries

Find problematic SQL queries via three different methods. Monitor custom SQL queries for application-specific monitoring.

Find top queries across servers

Uncover the top problematic SQL queries across multiple servers based on the total execution time.

View parsed audit logs

Display the parsed audit log in a tabular format. Access the audit log file like the slow query log, the general query log, and the error log.

View replication topology

View the replication hierarchy of servers along with details of each replicated server. Switch from graphical to tabular to deep dive into the running servers.

Optimize servers

Monitor deadlocks, disk usage, and error logs. Analyze historical data and trends. Use advisors to improve servers. Tune and optimize performance quickly.


Manage multiple users

Specify different access permissions for different users. Integrate the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol for Microsoft Active Directory and OpenLDAP.

Support different operating systems

Run SQL Diagnostic Manager on Microsoft Windows and Linux. Monitor MySQL and MariaDB in the cloud including database-as-a-service.

Deploy with flexible licensing

Acquire the monitoring application with perpetual licensing. Do not be restricted by the number of installations locally and remotely by the licensing.

Set up quickly

Configure SQL Diagnostic Manager easily with a single mouse click. Fetch the file paths of the SQL query logs automatically to start retrieving the contents of the log files.

Customize dashboards and charts

Customize charts and dashboards as per specific requirements for different environments.

Integrate with other systems

Integrate SQL Diagnostic Manager with other software (such as command shells, scripts, and applications) via the application programming interface.

Compare and track configurations

Compare configurations of multiple servers side-by-side with all changes highlighted. Track changes to server configuration files.

Deploy for hybrid cloud

Deploy SQL Diagnostic Manager to monitor on-premise databases, databases on cloud virtual machines, and managed cloud databases.


Install on cloud virtual machines

Run SQL Diagnostic Manager for MySQL on cloud virtual machines with Microsoft Windows and Linux – such as Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) and Microsoft Azure Virtual Machines (VMs).

Access mapped cloud drives

SQL Diagnostic Manager for MySQL can access cloud storage that is mapped as network drives or removable drives on Windows. For example, map to Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) and Microsoft Azure Blob Storage.

Monitor MySQL on cloud virtual machines

Monitor instances of MySQL running on cloud virtual machines – such as Amazon EC2 and Microsoft Azure VMs.

Monitor managed MySQL cloud databases

Monitor the managed MySQL cloud databases Amazon RDS for MySQL/MariaDB/Aurora, Microsoft Azure Database for MySQL, Google Cloud SQL for MySQL, and Oracle MySQL Cloud Service.

Monitor hybrid environments with a single tool

Avoid learning new tools by using the same performance monitoring tool for MySQL on-premise on physical and virtual machines, in the private, public, and government cloud on virtual machines, and in the public and government cloud as managed databases.

“Tamkeen Technologies ’s team monitored databases in the cloud with the same tools as for on-premise since using SQL Diagnostic Manager for MySQL.”
