If you use MySQL in any halfway serious way, and have not *yet* downloaded the MySQL Administrator tool, you need to do this asap 🙂 (available for both Windows and Linux)
The amount of configuration options made easily available to the admin is tantalising. Aside from the usual user/privilege handling, the following categories offer many configurable options:
- MyISAM parameter
- InnoDB Parameters
- Log files
… and a 3 graph health status monitor, similar to the Windows Task Manager.
