Database Server Monitoring

Databases are the backbone of any web application

Hardly any web application can do without a database. Storing and reading information quickly and reliably storing and reading information is essential for the vast majority of applications.
If errors occur in the database, they will in most cases also lead to errors in the application. in the application. It becomes annoying and above all costly when data is lost.

Database monitoring brings security

Powerful database monitoring detects problems before they become large and lead to data loss. In addition to pure availability, important database parameters parameters such as utilization or performance can be monitored. The monitoring of database processes, such as backup or replication, should also be given sufficient attention to ensure that no data is lost in the event of an error.

Detect database failure

There is probably no web application that can do without a database. If the database does not run, the web application will not run either. Therefore, when monitoring the server, special attention should be paid to the should be paid special attention to and checked at short intervals.

For these popular databases we offer server monitoring with the MySQL Monitor, mongoDB Monitor, PostGreSQL Monitor und MS SQL Monitor.
The Database Monitor checks your database by connecting to it and making a making a status query. If this is not successful, you will be alerted.

Monitor database details

If you don't want to monitor the status of replication, individual DB parameters or the integrity of the tables, you can use our Local Web or the Local Monitor.

In the process, you or we create a script in which you perform the check and output the result. The Local Web Monitor will query the script and alert you if it does not match the expected result.

How can I monitor replication?

Database replication is the process of distributing a database across multiple servers to spread the load and reduce the risk of outages. A master - slave scenario is often used, in which the master writes the data and the slave is only used for reading. The slave reads the changes constantly from the master and provides information that can be used for monitoring. This data can be read out and monitored with the Local Check Web Monitor, for example.

Which database parameters should be monitored?

Databases provide extensive information about ongoing operations. These can be read and monitor them using suitable threshold values. It is crucial that the database server itself is running and can be reached in the network. After that, it should be ensured that sufficient memory (hard disk and RAM) is available at all times. If this is the case, processes such as backup or replication come to the fore. Then you can start monitoring database performance parameters such as the utilization of individual caches.
