Argent for MySQL

Argent for MySQL is more than just a monitoring solution — like all Argent products, Argent for MySQL is a complete automation solution, automating all the essential but labor-intensive chores that all customers must perform to ensure MySQL runs smoothly.

With all the layoffs, there are fewer people to do more work – this is why Argent’s unique Instant Best Practices is essential – who has the time to read White Papers?

The most significant aspect of Argent for MySQL is the use of a number of different approaches to monitoring MySQL, unifying a centralized monitoring platform for MySQL running on all Windows or Linux/Unix systems. Think of Argent for MySQL as four or five discrete products all integrated into one super-product.


Argent for MySQL monitors and reports on MySQL baselines, such as connection statistics, replication status, locks, cache hit rates and custom SQL queries.

Argent for MySQL integrates with pre-defined Argent Reports that can be automatically emailed every morning to show the actual health and performance of MySQL.
