MySQL service monitoring

The NetScaler appliance has one built-in monitor that can be used to monitor MySQL services: the MySQL monitor. It periodically checks the MySQL service to which it is bound by sending a search query to it. If the search is successful, the service is marked UP. If the MySQL server does not respond or the search fails, a failure message is sent to the MySQL monitor, and the service is marked DOWN.

Note: Monitor probes originate from the NSIP address.

Parameter Specifies
database Database that is used for the MySQL monitor.
sqlQuery SQL query that is used for the MySQL monitor.

To configure built-in MySQL monitor, see Configuring Monitors in a Load Balancing Setup.
