Monitoring Bandwidth Usage for a Xen node @ IONCANNON

After my last post on limiting bandwidth usage on a Xen node I thought I would follow up with how to monitor the bandwidth usage of a Xen node. I chose to use netacct-mysql to monitor bandwidth and store the results into a mysql database. This isn't the only way of monitoring the bandwidth but it was easy to set up and stores the information directly into mysql without needing any extra scripts. On the Xen setup I'm using for an example there are 3 nodes and a bucket for each node will be created in the mysql database by netacct. Setting up netacct can be tricky so you will want to check to make sure traffic for each node is going into the correct bucket.

MySQL Performance Monitoring Tool by Quest Software

by 1 other
Spotlight® on MySQL diagnoses MySQL problems in real time by graphically displaying all database activity in an intuitive user interface, enabling you to respond quickly to issues that need attention. With Spotlight on MySQL, DBAs or developers running Windows can drill down to locate in-depth information on the source of a performance issue. And because the run-time nature of your MySQL databases is unique, Spotlight calibrates itself to a baseline of normal database activity. This allows Spotlight to automatically establish the speed of the internal flows and other activity indicators. When a threshold is met, Spotlight notifies you using a visual or audible alert. Spotlight on MySQL supports MySQL versions 5.0 or later that employ the InnoDB storage engine.
