Do you occasionally see a problem in your MySQL database,or that you suspect is caused by your MySQL database, but you can't diagnose it because you aren't looking when it happens? This commonly causes problems to continue for weeks or months before they are solved.

In this webcast presentation Baron Schwartz, author of High Performance MySQL 3rd Edition, explains how to use a set of open-source tools he designed specifically for unattended problem detection. The tools gather data for quick and reliable diagnosis. They can help you dramatically shorten the troubleshooting cycle time, leading to increased uptime and better quality of service.
