High MySQL usage on the Linux server
« on: September 20, 2008, 09:48:43 AM »

I have cPanel installed on one of the testing Linux server. I have noticed that MySQL using high resource on the server. I checked from WHM -> Show Running MySQL process but it didn't help me to check which MySQL database/user is using high resource. Is there any command through which I can check the resource usage from SSH?

You can check the current running MySQL processes using following command:

watch -n 0.5 mysqladmin proc

Also you can use below command at mysql prompt (mysql>) to see the current database in used but it will not refresh automatically.


Both the commands require root access of the server.

If you want to monitor MySQL processes like top command, you can install mytop on your server. Search for mytop for the installation instruction. It will not take more than a minute to install.

cPanel provides very helpful Mysql process check plugin called as WatchMySQL. You can install it easily on your server via SSH using following commands.

cd /usr/src
wget http://download.ndchost.com/watchmysql/latest-watchmysql
sh latest-watchmysql

It's that simple! Now log into the WHM, scroll down to the plugins section and click the 'WatchMySQL' link.
