Hi @KILAAdmin

You can monitor cluster load and resources utilization metrics from the cloud panel. There are two kinds of metrics:

Cluster metrics monitor the performance of the nodes in a database cluster. Cluster metrics cover primary and standby nodes; metrics for each read-only node are displayed independently. This data can help guide capacity planning and optimization. You can also set up alerting on cluster metrics.

Database metrics monitor the performance of the database itself. This data can help assess the health of the database, pinpoint performance bottlenecks, and identify unusual use patterns that may indicate an application bug or security breach.

You have to select cluster name from the drop-down menu to see its metrics.

I hope this helps.

Hi there,

In addition to what has already been mentioned here, you can now add scalable storage to managed database clusters as shown in this video here:

Hi @KILAAdmin,

From the Cloud Control Panel, just click on your database cluster and go to the “Insights” sub-tab.

In the Select object, drop-down menu lists choose the cluster name of the MySQL managed database; You will be able to find cluster information related to CPU, Memory & Disk utilization.

Please find our below documentation which will guide you with monitoring MySQL managed database.

I hope this helps!
