MySQL Observability with Honeycomb

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.

Self-Hosted MySQL

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.

Configure your self-hosted MySQL instance.

Hosted on RDS

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.

Configure your RDS instance to send data to Honeycomb.

Open Source

Honeytail and our installers are all open source, Apache 2.0 licensed. Their source can be found on GitHub:
