"If you are a Linux system administrator or have a Linux server running a LAMP stack, you might want to be able to keep an eye on the different elements that contribute to keeping your applications and websites alive. This would include your web server, database server, the operating system itself, among other things. Let's take a look at how you can monitor the performance of your MySQL server using Mytop, a free and open source network/server monitoring software. Mytop is a clone of the popular UNIX application, 'top'.

"The Installation:

"On Red Hat Linux based systems such as Fedora you can execute the command "# yum -y install mytop". For Ubuntu Linux users you can just execute the standard "# sudo apt-get install mytop". Jeremy Zawodny, the project's author, also has a source release if you can't find the binary version for your distribution. You can find it at the Mytop protect page at http://jeremy.zawodny.com/mysql/mytop/."
