Likelihood to Recommend

MySQL

It is extremely well-suited for use cases across a broad range of applications such as e-commerce and business applications, and most small to larger organizations will find it well-suited for their data storage needs for a particular application. However, it is not designed for data warehousing and would not do well for analytics data for which a No-SQL option would serve better, and it is not ideal for geographical data management.

Wireshark

Wireshark is well suited for scenarios in which the technical difficulties are being faced. A lot of times we are not aware of how computers actually talk with each other. With Wireshark, you can learn this topic in depth and help yourself and your colleagues in case anyone is facing any sort of networking related problems. Many people just use the computer system for basic tasks and often tend to get stuck on simple things like if the system is not able to retrieve the IP from the router. After you learn these concepts you can easily solve these problems. Wireshark is a bit of a technical software program and only intended for people who have a basic understanding/ background of computers. If not, this software might end up giving you a lot of information which will be really tough for you to understand. So I would recommend if you want to use this software and are interested in the concepts as mentioned before/ above, go through a quick course on computer networking concepts and you shall be good to start exploring Wireshark.

Pros

MySQL

  • MySQL is first off free to use, so that makes it a win right there.
  • MySQL is constantly updated and security holes are patched quickly and often.
  • MySQL is highly customizable and allows you access to all areas of the database to use it the way you want, plus there is lots of documentation online and other users sharing their customization experiences to help you along the way.

Wireshark

  • Details on the granular level: This software dissects the packets to the maximum limit possible. It shows you everything passing by in the packet including all the headers. It is amazing to see, without fail, how computers are actually interacting.
  • Available on all the Operating Systems: This software can be downloaded and installed on any OS (Windows, Mac or Linux). It never limits you to one OS. This is an amazing and a very constructive feature of Wireshark.
  • Doesn't become a load on the systems processor: The software works flawlessly without actually making any load on the systems processor. It works smoothly and does not lag at any time.
  • Multiple dumps simultaneously: This software can listen on multiple NIC's at once and provide you the dump. You need not work on one NIC at once, plug in and listen on all of them at once.

Cons

MySQL

  • Complex queries usually require many resources to obtain results. Other software does not present this situation.
  • MySQL has stopped its evolutionary process since its change of ownership, so the changes it presents have become irrelevant to the operation of the service.
  • Oracle has avoided releasing the code for the detection and correction of errors so the essence of open source has been disappearing

Wireshark

  • It is beginner-friendly as far as installation, but it could use a tutorial.
  • Perhaps there is a way to do this already, but I haven't yet seen it. It would be nice if it could be integrated with a network package that could detect network anomalies, fire up an automated packet analysis, and send a report to an administrator.

I give MySQL a 9/10 overall because I really like it but I feel like there are a lot of tech people who would hate it if I gave it a 10/10. I've never had any problems with it or reached any of its limitations but I know a few people who have so I can't give it a 10/10 based on those complaints.

I give Wireshark a 10 for usability because it is very usable. Just about anyone can capture packets within a few seconds of opening the program. The analysis is a science but as far as just using Wireshark; it's very easy.

The support staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient. I only had to get part way through my explanations before they had a solution. They will walk you through a fix or actually connect in and fix the problem for you--or would if you can allow it. I've done it both ways with them. They are always forthcoming with 'how to do this if it happens again' information. I love working with MySQL support.

I don't believe Wireshark has "true" support as the software is open source. However, there is an active & friendly community around Wireshark that are more than happy to help answer questions. From a comprehensive Wiki and FAQ section on the site to the Ask a Question forum and bug tracker section, there's plenty of support options to make sure your questions and issues are addressed.

We actually use Sisense alongside MySQL as they integrate very well with one another. One of MySQL's flaws is its slow speeds on larger datasets which is why we began using Sisense. This way, we can organize several feeds into one source without having to do repetitious work on different sources.

Wireshark

Wireshark is MUCH more in-depth and easy to use. Even though the files can get large and be a bit overwhelming, there are plenty of how-to articles and forums that can help you find the desired syntax for what you are looking for. Netflow Traffic Analyzer seems like a bit of an afterthought and doesn't hold a candle to the value Wireshark delivers.

Return on Investment

MySQL

  • MySQL has been a vital cost reducing technology for smaller databases that do not require commercial support.
  • We have successfully sold the enterprise edition to customers who wanted to beef up the capabilities of MySQL compared to the community edition without rewriting an application to use a fully commercial database such as DB2, Oracle or SQL Server
  • MySQL has been extremely cost effective where we have deployed it. When compared to Oracle or MySQL, the savings has been substantial.

Wireshark

  • Wireshark is the most important tool for any network engineer like me to perform the daily work. One of the examples is to troubleshoot the network issues raised from customer complain, helps to narrow down the root cause the get the issue fixed.
