Percona Monitoring and Management has helped in monitoring thousand of database servers "MySQL" in one place which has decreased the complexity of our system. I like to do an Advanced Configuration, there is more option available to customize. I think the most valuable and secure features are the warning critical levels. For example, in one case we were looking to alert of CPU usage - and if it's over 60% in an average period of time then it's not entrusting, and if it's over 90% it's critical, which you can specify the values that are best for your application. It's easy to use and deploy with a Beautiful GUI with Grafana and has Zabbix integration.
  • Everything has its graphs by category
  • Easy enough to customized and deploy
  • Very in depth metrics for MySQL, DBaaS, ProxySQL
  • PMM alerting system should be updated and improved
  • In some categories you cant grasp 25% of information
My experience with PMM has been excellent it helps us monitoring a variety of applications such as MYSQL and MongoDB.
1. its value the ability to look at trending data history.
2. Great monitoring tools and it's free
3. Has an easy and simple solution for complex databases
5. Best for alert solution for MYSQL and MongoDB.
Percona Monitoring and Management has its community support and provides great data in blogs and other posts. I didn't face any issues with PMM so didn't need customer support till now.

Percona Monitoring and Management (PMM) offers us a very complete view of everything that happens, allowing us to select the time intervals we want to study and individually select the database we want to see, thus improving the user experience.

"Metrics Monitor" & "Query Analitycs" are two interesting functionalities that allow us to detect problems in the performance of our queries, in addition to providing proactive information on possible performance problems in the future if what it shows us reaches the production teams with those that interact with our clients or the administrators of our company. The set of graphics and elements to select gives us great ease when configuring the dashboard to our liking and covering many of the company's needs.
  • Measure the time and performance of queries made in a database
  • Integration with tools like Prometheus with the aim of storing information based on time
  • Monitor our databases in the cloud, as well as optimize the performance of the database, improving the usability of customer applications
  • It would be interesting to add support to more monitoring tools and improve the notification system so that there are more customization options.
One of the main advantages is the integration with tools like Prometheus with the aim of storing information based on time. In addition, it offers a good interaction with the different agents using a REST API to show the results in Grafana dashboards.

We monitor hundreds of database servers (MySQL) with PMM and we has been actively using it on prod since the first betas. It's extremely helpful, easy to deploy and it makes possible for the whole OPS team to check the status of the DB layer. The Query Analyzer is the only Open Source query visualization tool that is being developed and it's also useful when hunting for problematic/resource intensive queries.
  • Easy to deploy.
  • Easy to use.
  • Nice interface.
  • Setting up alerts is still complicated.
  • Automatic dashboards based on ec2 tags.
  • Better scaling for larger deployment.
There are no other open source tools out there that could compete with PMM in its league. If you use MySQL (or PostgreSQL, ProxySQL) you can have a running monitoring in a couple of minutes. The agents are not really resource intensive and Percona provides a repo for most of the main Linux distributions. The documentation is thorough and straightforward. The defaults are good!
Percona has a history of being good at providing really informative materials in form of blog post, documentation, webinars or conference presentations. T is also true to the Percona Monitoring and Management, you can find excellent source of information on their site or on the forum. Support tickets are also handled well.

The current version of PMM also supports the RED method graphs which helps to improve RCA Process. The inbuilt graphs are covering all details about MySQL/Mongo and Postgres.
  • Simple UI
  • Deep dive of MySQL internal graphs
  • Detailed graphs of Database internals and System
  • High Availability
  • Configuration for multiple alerting
  • Inbuilt alert manager rules
PMM is well suited for all environments where MySQL/Mongo and Postgres is being used.

2. Organization those are fast pace
3. Who believes in blameless RCA

PMM Is community-supported, I have not used customer support so far. But as usual percona team is always receptive on feedback.
