  • mycheckpoint, discontinued

    March 6, 2014

    Time to admit to myself: mycheckpoint has to be discontinued. I started mycheckpoint back in 2009, as a free & open source lightweight monitoring tool for MySQL. Over some years it evolved and became an actual (lightweight) monitoring solution, used by many. It has a unique and original design, which, alas, is also its bane. […]

    A new release for mycheckpoint: lightweight, SQL oriented MySQL monitoring solution.

  • MySQL monitoring: storing, not caching

    February 22, 2012

    I've followed with interest on Baron's Why don’t our new Nagios plugins use caching? and Sheeri's Caching for Monitoring: Timing is Everything. I wish to present my take on this, from mycheckpoint's point of view. So mycheckpoint works in a completely different way. On one hand, it doesn't bother with caching. On the other hand, […]

  • Documentation in SQL: CALL for help()

    January 11, 2012

    Documentation is an important part of any project. On the projects I maintain I put a lot of effort on documentation, and, frankly, the majority of time spent on my projects is on documentation. The matter of keeping the documentation faithful is a topic of interest. I'd like to outline a few documentation bundling possibilities, […]

To date, Google Image Charts do not support time-series […]

  • Generating Google line charts with SQL, part I

    February 1, 2011

    In this series of posts I wish to show how Google Charts can be generated via SQL. We discuss the Google Charts limitations which must be challenged, and work towards a simple chart. I'm going to present the algorithm I use in mycheckpoint, a MySQL monitoring utility, which generates Google charts by raw data using […]

  • openark-kit, Facebook Online Schema Change, and thoughts on open source licenses

    September 16, 2010

    MySQL@Facebook team have recently published an Online Schema Change code for non blocking ALTER TABLE operations. Thumbs Up! The code is derived from oak-online-alter-table, part of openark-kit, a toolkit I'm authoring. Looking at the documentation I can see many ideas were incorporated as well. And of course many things are different, a lot of work […]
