Why Monitor MySQL Cluster Database Server?

Owing to the high availability and load-balancing capabilities, clustered databases are often the preferred backend in many mission-critical IT infrastructures delivering key end-user services. This is why, the non-availability of a clustered node to an application, or a tablespace contention experienced by the clustered node, or an unusually high locking activity on the node, may cause the dependent end-user services to suffer. To avoid this, the MySQL Cluster should be continuously monitored. For this purpose, the eG Enterprise provides a specialized MySQL Cluster monitoring model.
