Releem: Simplifying MySQL Query Analytics

Tackling slow or inefficient queries is a major headache. They drag down your database's performance, make applications sluggish, and can easily derail your productivity with time-intensive manual debugging. Identifying these problematic queries is not straightforward, and fine-tuning them to run efficiently takes up even more valuable time.

What are Query Analytics?

With Releem's new Query Analytics feature, you gain a smart monitoring tool that automates the identification of inefficient queries.

Inefficient queries use up excessive amounts of database resources, such as CPU time, memory, and disk I/O. This leads to slower performance and increased load on your server. These inefficiencies can be due to various factors, including how the queries are written, the structure of your database, and the absence or improper use of indexes.

The Query Analytics Block appears directly on Releem's dashboard, offering you an unprecedented view into the health of your MySQL database queries. It ranks your top 100 SQL queries based on two critical metrics: execution time and total load time. The block includes the following columns:

  • Count – A running count of how many times the query has executed since the last server restart.
  • Average Execution Time – Shows you the time it takes for each query to execute, allowing you to quickly identify and address slow-performing queries that can hinder your database performance.
  • Load on Total Time – Evaluates the total time consumed by all instances of that query, giving you a clear understanding of the query's cumulative impact on your server. This column includes a helpful visual (orange or blue bar) so you can quickly gauge which queries are having a greater impact.
  • Action – Click the Inspect button to view a specific query in detail.

How to Show Slow Queries – Sort by Average Time

To view slow queries, find the Query Analytics Block on the dashboard. Click the 'Avg. Execution Time' column heading. This will sort your top 100 queries in order, with the slowest-executing queries listed at the top.

How to Show Queries With Highest Performance Impact  – Sort by Total Load Time

To view queries that have the greatest impact on your server's performance, find the Query Analytics Block on the dashboard. Click the 'Load on Total Time' column heading. This will sort your top 100 queries in order, with the queries that are using the most resources overall listed at the top.

How to Inspect Query Details

Click the "Inspect" button to view the query statement in full.
