AjaxMyTop: MySQL Monitor

Category: Database, Showcase

We’ve seen in-browser SQL, a database administrator, and even a database designer. Now there’s a database monitor…

AjaxMyTop shows active MySQL connections. You get a data grid showing connections, each showing ID, user, duration, and so on. Periodic Refresh ensures the connections are kept fresh, and you can easily set the refresh period in an input field. Being a true data grid, the connection list can be sorted and filtered on one or more fields. In a nice touch, the column heading morphs to include a text input when you want to type in a filter for that column. It’s nice to see keyboard shortcuts here, certainly a feature every DBA will welcome.

Right now it looks to be read-only … hopefully the team will add a “destroy connection” button real soon now!

We actually have the ability to kill threads in the latest release. There might be a bug with the display, but you can kill threads by pressing “k” and then entering the thread ID.

Someone AJAXified mytop!

Check this out. Someone has built and AJAX powered version of mytop, the little console based MySQL monitoring tool I wrote years ago. I guess it’s now buzzword compliant. If you can’t wait to get your hands on it, head over to the AjaxMyTop project…

mytop is a very valuable tool for mysql. It’s essentially a unix top command but for mysql threads. Recently created and bringing the same data to your web browser is the Ajax-ified version AjaxMyTop. Way cool!

mytop is a handy little program for monitoring MySQL queries that we’ve used in the past on a couple of our boxes so I decided to fire up this AJAX version and see how it fared.
