Service ScopeWhat is included in Health Check for MySQL?
We access your MySQL server using a secure connection method such as VPN or SSH using access details and credentials you provide.
We identify hardware components such as processor make and model, physical memory size and storage type and configuration to determine system capacity limits.
We determine the operating system, examine disk partitions and file systems, and check system parameters that may be relevant to MySQL performance.
We evaluate system resources utilisation to verify if the hardware can keep up with the workload demand during peak usage periods.
We analyse database operation logs and high-resolution MySQL performance metrics to detect slowdowns, stalls and other problems.
Following the analysis, we draft a report that highlights verified or potential problems and provides information about next steps you may take to address them.
You are welcome to follow up with questions or schedule a call with us to discuss the results.
