Monitoring MySQL Services

Aug 31, 2016

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 NetScaler IP (NSIP) address.
