Enhanced Percona Database Monitoring Platform Enables Faster Performance Issue Resolution

Percona, a provider of open source database software and services, has launched Percona Monitoring and Management 2 (PMM2), an enhanced version of its free and open source database monitoring platform. PMM2 provides a single-pane-of-glass to monitor the performance of MySQL, MariaDB, MongoDB, and PostgreSQL database environments.
PMM provides database administrators and developers with deep insight into their public cloud, private cloud, and on-premise environments. The latest release of PMM provides faster query analytics and a new administrative API, which allows for greater integration with other technologies. PMM2 identifies and solves performance bottlenecks faster, preventing scaling issues and potential outages.
"With users’ expectations for application speed and availability at an all-time high, companies require quicker and deeper insight into their database performance bottlenecks, a higher-level perspective of multiple systems they monitor, and the ability to monitor larger and more complex systems. PMM2 delivers on all these requirements and more,” said Peter Zaitsev, co-founder, and CEO of Percona. “According to our own research, 92% of companies have more than one database in their environment. PMM2 helps these companies find and eliminate database inefficiencies across the complex mix of multiple databases, platforms, and providers, making it easier for developers and DBAs to solve problems before they affect applications and services.”
PMM2 enables faster time to issue resolution, helping developers identify problematic queries faster, and now supporting ClickHouse columnar storage for reduced query analytics response times. The release includes 48 example dashboards, including new service-level dashboards to help DBAs and developers review fleets of servers for a high-level service perspective, and drill down to clusters, replication sets, and individual instances to access the data they need immediately.

PMM2 also includes a new API for extending and interacting with third-party tools. Users can

manage PMM with a command line interface that is easily integrated into their configuration management environment,  and also add, modify, and remove instances with ease and deploy large fleets of servers through automation.
