Watch this quick video with Michael Coburn, Product Manager for Percona Monitoring and Management (PMM), demonstrating how to look at what is happening in your database during high-traffic events.
You need a functioning database for your websites and applications to deliver goods and services to your customers. If the database goes down, your sites and apps go down. If those go down, your business flatlines.
A down database is a major emergency.
One of the things that can take down your database is an unexpected high-traffic event. A big shopping day, a product mention in media, a new game release, a market expansion – all of these can suddenly drive large numbers of people to your business online. Higher online traffic means higher database workloads. If your database isn’t ready, it can crash.
Is your database up to the challenge?
How can you tell what is going on in your database? Monitoring. A good monitoring system provides visibility into key database performance metrics. These metrics can give you insight into your database status.
But what metrics should you monitor, and what do they tell you? Check out How High Traffic Events Affect Your Database Environment for a quick video using Percona Monitoring and Management to demonstrate how to look at what is happening in your database during high-traffic events.
