MySQL has grown to be one of the pieces of software powering giant swaths of the Internet. No matter where your MySQL database is located, whether self-hosted or run on RDS, Honeycomb can provide maximum visibility into your MySQL deployment.
Honeycomb’s logs-based connector for MySQL hooks into the built-in slow query log and extracts useful information. This solution requires direct access to the log files generated by the MySQL instance.
Amazon’s Relational Database Service, RDS, lets you use a number of databases without having to administer them yourself. Our RDS connector gives our self-hosted MySQL solution access to the same data as if you were running MySQL on your own servers.
Honeytail and our installers are all open source, Apache 2.0 licensed. Their source can be found on GitHub:
