Azure Database for MySQL monitoring
The Azure Database for MySQL overview page serves as a comprehensive overview of your MySQL servers and database instances. From here you can gain full visibility and check if your database is healthy, under-performing, or if there are any failed connections.
- Dynatrace version 1.196+
- Environment ActiveGate version 1.195+
To learn how to enable service monitoring, see Enable service monitoring.
Optionally, for OneAgent integration, see how database activity is monitored.
View service metrics
You can view the service metrics in your Dynatrace environment either on the custom device overview page or on your Dashboards page.
View metrics on the custom device overview page
To access the custom device overview page
- In the Dynatrace menu, go to Technologies.
Filter by service name and select the relevant custom device group.
- Once you select the custom device group, you're on the custom device group overview page.
- The custom device group overview page lists all instances (custom devices) belonging to the group. Select an instance to view the custom device overview page.
View metrics on your dashboard
Once you add a service to monitoring, a preset dashboard for the respective service containing all recommended metrics is automatically created on your Dashboards page. You can look for specific dashboards by filtering by Preset and then by Name.
For existing monitored services, you might need to resave your credentials for the preset dashboard to appear on the Dashboards page. To resave your credentials, go to Settings > Cloud and virtualization > Azure, select the desired Azure instance, then select Save.
You can't make changes on a preset dashboard directly, but you can clone and edit it. To clone a dashboard, open the browse menu (…) and select Clone.
To remove a dashboard from the dashboards list, you can hide it. To hide a dashboard, open the browse menu (…) and select Hide.
Hiding a dashboard doesn't affect other users.
Set up a management zone
To import a dashboard for Azure Database for MySQL, you need to set up a management zone to limit the entities displayed on the dashboard to those relevant to this service.
When you create a management zone for this dashboard:
- Create a rule that identifies services based on a common property:
- Service type equals
- Service topology equals
- Service type equals
- Add a condition for the database name to contain the
mysqlstring (case sensitive.)
After you create the management zone, assign it to your dashboard (from the dashboard, select Edit > Settings > Default management zone). For more information, see Dashboard timeframe and management zone.
