Why MySQL Audits?

Key benefits

MySQL health check audit provides users with a pro-active assessment of their MySQL database. It enables businesses to rapidly work out the current state of their database servers in order to deal with MySQL optimization issues before they become problems. This pro-active form of MySQL tuning is ideal for anyone so wants to keep on top of their system’s performance and reliability functions, rather than react to issues once they have started to cause difficulties.


A full MySQL health check audit should be able to identify the system’s complete resource utilization and offer an assessment of the servers’ remaining capacity. As such, plans for additional hardware can be put in place at an early stage, if needed, helping to manage budgets more effectively. One of the prime benefits of using the MySQL tuning service is that it determines the exact nature of database performance issue and operational problems. This means that it points out just where action is required in order to effect MySQL optimization, not simply that there happens to be an issue. By identifying sub-optimal MySQL usage patterns, counter measures can be worked out, helping to avoid the associated risks of inaction. Ideally, a MySQL health check will allow corrective measures to be taken prior to symptoms escalating into much more serious crises.

Following a MySQL optimization check-up, an expert written report is delivered that describes the state of the system and detailing any issues. It will list any actionable recommendations providing full performance metrics and performance analysis. Assistance is on offer to help implement the recommendations, if required.
