Check this out. Someone has built and AJAX powered version of mytop, the little console based MySQL monitoring tool I wrote years ago. I guess it's now buzzword compliant.
If you can't wait to get your hands on it, head over to the AjaxMyTop project on SourceForge.
Everything old is new again. :-)

Wow, great! It's a simple idea and yet genius. :)
Excellent! MyTop is one of those tools you can't live without once you start using it. From the screenshots, it doesn't look like AjaxMyTop displays the aggregate query statistics. That's a shame, because even though individual queries are important to monitor, I've found that the aggregate information is more useful to determine overall performance issues. I've used MyTop several times to help pick the right storage engine based on the se/in/up/de statistics under a load.
Good Blog. Although I to use the translation of google to read
Hey Jeremy. Wanted to say thanks for the post, and THANK YOU for mytop!! I use(d) it all the time to monitor our MySQL servers at work and just thought it would be cool to have a web-interface.
We just started this project a few weeks ago and are pretty surprised at the attention it's received. We never really meant to publicize it or make it a big deal, but considering some of the feedback we're getting, the other developers and I are now committed to making it every bit as useful as mytop.
So thanks again! And check back on the project periodically as we've got some more mytop-type features planned.
So...there's two tool waiting to be tried out. mytop and ajaxmytop. and perhaps topjax too.
