We all want the best of both worlds: a car that’s sexy and fast, as well as safe and affordable; a meal that’s healthy and also satisfying. When it comes to IT, companies that are operating at scale have been telling us for years that they wish they could get the agility of the multi-tenant public cloud, along with the simplicity, consistent performance, and predictable cost of single-tenant servers.

Cloud Databases instances are already preconfigured with a default set of metrics, including CPU, memory, disk usage, average load, network and MySQL specific metrics. You can monitor both real-time statistics and historical trends in usage using our API and our CLI. However, you have told us that you want that capability with a friendly user interface too.

Cloud Monitoring was designed to make sure that when something goes wrong we are the first to know, and the first to let you know. As your app grows, it becomes more critical that every monitoring notification you get is actionable. If it isn’t something you can take action on, it ends up taking time away from what really matters. Because of this tenet we’ve realized that not only is it important to create actionable alerts, but also to have the ability to let the monitoring system know if any of those alerts won’t be actionable for a period of time.
