MySQL monitoring tool

MaRiOsGR asked
Last Modified: 2008-02-01
We have a Red Hat server with almost 1200 websites.
many of them use mysql, and lately i see a lots of load in mysql and cpu time, when I run top.
I started suddenly so I think its fault of some website with a big or bad query.

Is there any monitoring tool that will show me the most heavy queries of all the databases that run in the server?

mytop isnt good cause its monitoring only one db.
Watch Question

MySQL Administrator is a tool that allows you to administer your environment and gain visibility into how your databases are operating.  This tool will show you the Process List, (show processlist;) which will display any current and pending queries, and how long they've been in queue.  I recommend you enable the slow query log, if you haven't done so already.
