percona app, and really do like it. It relies on Prometheus to gather and
persist data behind the scenes. You won't find anything with better
dashboards straight out of the box.
Another potential data source is Telegraf (and the MySQL plugin) dumping
data to InfluxDB. We're using Influx for a great deal of our metrics, so
that route was a little more natural than adding in another data store.

at a crossroads where I'm seriously considering moving away from Oracle to
focus mostly on MySQL. I feel like I rode the coat tails of the Oracle wave

The addition of Performance Schema was huge for me. What MySQL has
historically lacked is instrumentation. PS is a huge step forward into

Does anyone have recommendations on good MySQL forums (like Oracle-L) or
recommend performance blogs or performances books?
I'm looking into ways of monitoring and visualizing performance data in
these databases similar to the work I did with teams at Oracle on OEM and
Embarcadero for DB Optimizer.
