10 Essential FOSS Tools For MySQL

MySQL toolmaker Daniel Nichter provides a look at 10 must-have free and open source tools for MySQL. ‘MySQL has attracted a vibrant community of developers who are putting out high-quality open source tools to help with the complexity, performance, and health of MySQL systems, most of which are available for free,’ writes Nichter, who was named 2010 MySQL Community Member of the Year for his work on maatkit. From mydumper, to mk-query-digest, to stalk and collect, the list compiles tools to help back up MySQL data, increase performance, guard against data drift, and log pertinent troubleshooting data when problems arise, each of which is a valuable resource for anyone using MySQL, from a stand-alone instance to a multiple-node environment.
