MySQL health check tips

Oracle Tips by Burleson Consulting
February 21, 2008


Question:  What are the specific benefits of a MySQL health check?

Answer:  All MySQL databases require periodic health checks for a variety of reasons including certification of standard practices, performance and security. All health checks are performed remotely by an expert consultant and we work closely with your DBA staff to resolve all important MySQL health issues.

MySQL environmental health check

We check all aspects of the OS environment including kernel parameters (registry for Windows) and evaluate OS optimization for these MySQL external areas:

- Kernel parameters
- CPU configuration
- Software Raid (Linux)
- Filesystem integrity (AIDE, Tripwire)
- SAN and NAS settings
- DNS, FTP, HTTP (Connection and content), pop3/imap,
- Security - SMTP, ssh
- Filesystem survey - mounts points


MySQL Health Check Internal Activities

A MySQL database health check involves a complete investigation of the database and the surrounding environment:

  • Backup and Recovery health check - The MySQL Health Check will validate your backup and recovery procedures to ensure that your MySQL database can be recovered in cases of hardware or software failure.

  • MySQL best practices check - We certify that your MySQL databases follows standard best practices.

  • MySQL Performance health check - A MySQL Health check will review all of the MySQL configuration parameters and disk configuration to ensure that your MySQL database is optimized to make maximum use of all available hardware resources.  This includes a check of the disk I/O sub-system latency (disk bottlenecks) and a review of Network, RAM and CPU utilization.

Just call now and we can optimize your MySQL database in just a few hours.  BC knows exactly how to optimize any MySQL database.
