  • We have been using for last ~6 years and works pretty well.
  • If you use Percona MySQL build then you can use
  • You can use ProxySQL which allows you to get the query logs.
  • If the intention is to troubleshoot a performance issue then sign up for a free trial of vividcortex, it will bring you closest to Oracle OEM, I would recommend using it for solving performance issues since it will give you detailed stats about all metrics such as count, average latency, p99 latency for each SQL executed over TCP on the MySQL server.
