Monitoring ProxySQL using Datadog
ProxySQL is a high performance proxy for MySQL and its forks. One of the key features is its ability to handle hundreds of thousands of connections with very low overhead. Datadog is a monitoring service for cloud-scale applications, bringing together data from servers, databases, tools, and services to present a unified view of an entire stack.
Datadog does not yet provide an integration for ProxySQL. So I decided to write an integration by forking the Datadog agent. Read my detailed blog post on TwinDB Blog to learn how to use the ProxySQL-Datadog integration.
