For MySQL , I use MySQLTuner  it helps me to check query performance and the memory leak.  So I used to fix them by optimizing those settings.

"MySQLTuner-perl

MySQLTuner is a script written in Perl that allows you to review a MySQL installation quickly and make adjustments to increase performance and stability. The current configuration variables and status data is retrieved and presented in a brief format along with some basic performance suggestions.

MySQLtuner is not for monitoring, right?

Define "DB server response time". I haven't heard such thing before. A db server response is function of physical parameters like I/O, network, and logical parameters like query performance which are both measured by Solarwind monitor. True, doesn't work with MySql unfortunately.

You can simply ping a server tosee how good the network is and build a simple script that will query regularly some database, measure the response time and keep a history to compare.

"True, doesn't work with MySql unfortunately."

so I can't consider it as I will be justified on why not meansuring them both.

"You can simply ping a server tosee how good the network is and build a simple script that will query regularly some database, measure the response time and keep a history to compare. "

how ?I don't see script to measure that.

Loganathan Natarajan,

about heidisql, do we have to run it all the time from a workstation ? it seems can't run on a server?

the time column is the response time ?

HeidiSQL is just a management/development tool and not a monitoring tool.

Zberteoc,

yes, you are right and that's why I ask Loganathan Natarajan for this, the link he gave me doesn't shows that up.

All,

I have checked a lot of tools that if I want MySQL and MS SQL monitor by a single box, only application manager and Zabbix can do it, one on windows and one on Linux.

but one thing, they can only monitor Query level response time.
