Remote MySQL Performance and Query Monitoring
There may be the situation that you have to monitor a MySQL
server remotely. There are some linux tools to do performance and query
monitoring locally, and these tools can also used to monitor remotely -
but only unencrypted ! Also often MySQL is only listening on the
loopback interface, so it is even not reachable remotely over the net
(which is very good seen from the security viewpoint). But there is an
easy solution in the Linux world.
