Andy Bang
Senior Software Developer
Dear MySQL users,

The MySQL development team is pleased to announce that MySQL Enterprise Monitor 3.1 is now generally available (GA).

MySQL Enterprise Monitor provides real-time visibility into the performance and availability of all your MySQL databases. Start monitoring MySQL within 10 minutes with zero configuration and no agents. Installer packages for version 3.1 GA are available now on My Oracle Support and a free trial will be available on the Oracle Software Delivery Cloud at the next monthly refresh in November. For more information, see http://www.mysql.com/products/enterprise/monitor.html and the Useful URLs below.

Version 3.1 adds significant enhancements in the areas of security and performance tuning.  Highlights include:

  • New MySQL 5.7 metrics and collections.
  • Performance tuning tools to identify I/O hot spots and lock wait contention. The Database File I/O and Lock Waits reports utilize the sys schema, which can be installed on the selected instance from within MySQL Enterprise Monitor.
  • Access Control Lists - MySQL Enterprise Monitor 3.1 introduces Access Control Lists (ACLs) that enable the following functionality within the monitoring tool:
    • Define visibility: strictly limit access to specific groups of assets or grant access to all assets.
    • Define Roles: rather than define permissions per user, as in previous releases, permission sets are defined in roles and roles can be assigned to users.
    • Restrict access to sensitive data: grant or deny rights to view specific types of potentially sensitive data, such as Query Analyzer data.
    • Authenticate using external services: map your users to roles defined in LDAP or Active Directory.
  • Monitoring of MySQL Enterprise Firewall to protect your MySQL servers from database-specific attacks and receive alerts when a potential security threat has been identified.
  • Monitoring of MySQL Enterprise Audit to enforce your own security policies and satisfy regulatory compliance with HIPAA, Sarbanes- Oxley, and the PCI Data Security Standard.
  • Bug fixes, enhancement requests and usability improvements were made throughout the product, including a new Group Editor on the Settings menu, new User and Roles editors, and customizable graphs on the Overview dashboard.

To download MySQL Enterprise Monitor 3.1 installer packages from My Oracle Support, choose the "Patches & Updates" tab, and then use the "Product or Family (Advanced Search)" feature.

Please open a bug or a ticket on My Oracle Support to report problems, request features, or give us general feedback about how this release meets your needs.

Happy Monitoring!

- The MySQL Enterprise Tools Development Team
