Cloud-Based MySQL Database Monitoring from Monitis

New feature provides significantly faster insight and root cause analysis

San Jose, CA, February 19, 2012 --( Monitis, the leading cloud and web application monitoring software provider, today announces that it has added comprehensive MySQL database monitoring to its award-winning Application Performance Management & Monitoring platform. The robust Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) tool enables users to gain significantly faster insight when conducting root cause analysis.

The MySQL monitoring feature includes 246 monitoring variables and more than 21 different metrics to provide one of the easiest to use, yet comprehensive database monitoring tools available. It was first introduced into the free Monitor.Us platform back in June last year and has seen the code battle hardened by many hundred free users over the last 8 months.

Hovhannes Avoyan, founder and General Manager at Monitis commented “This feature makes it easy for systems administrators and web developers to measure and monitor the performance of their php environments such as Joomla and WordPress, from multiple locations around the world. It gives them a true picture of application performance from where ever in the world the user is. Because the Monitis MySQL monitor is part of the Monitis platform it provides an unprecedented holistic view of software, database and underlying hardware, giving pressured techs the ability to quickly and easily diagnose the root cause of slow application performance.”

The service uses a small Linux agent that can monitor inside an organization’s firewall and distributed systems. The Monitis agent connects to a local or remote database and collects a variety of health and performance metrics that are graphically displayed in real-time on a web-based dashboard. Users can also set up notifications (should their database go down or pass a certain level of access volume) based on client-defined thresholds and rules.

Some metrics tracked and reported on by Monitis — which can be set up in minutes — include:

Database size
Resource utilization
Analysis of responsiveness/latency
Analysis of throughput
Database usage

“Monitis’ SaaS delivery and pay as you go pricing mean it’s easy to get going and has low set up and running costs. It puts the power of MySQL monitoring in the reach of techs who otherwise wouldn’t have had the time to set up or budget to afford such a comprehensive solution,” adds Avoyan.

Monitis MySQL Monitoring provides much greater check-in frequency, as low as every 5 minutes, and the ability to check the performance of the database from multiple locations around the world.
