1. Mytop Mytop
is one of my classic open source and free console-based (non-gui) monitoring tool for MySQL database was written by Jereme Zawodny using Perl language. Mytop runs in a terminal and displays statistics about threads, queries, slow queries, uptime, load, etc. in tabular format, much similar to the Linux top program. Which indirectly helps the administrators to optimize and improve performance of MySQl to handle large requests and decrease server load.
