Sun adds Query Analyzer to MySQL

Subscription service customers only

In brief Sun Microsystems has added a query analysis tool to MySQL, but for paying customers only.

The Fall '08 upgrade for Sun's subscription-based MySQL Enterprise service includes Query Analyzer, a closed-source tool designed to improve the speed of mySQL database applications.

Query Analyzer monitors query performance to help spot problems in SQL code. It expands on MySQL's existing slow query log with real-time analysis and an ability to search and sort queries by type, content, server, date/time, and the like.

To get the code, customers need a gold or above subscription level with Sun. That ranges from $599 to $5,000 per server per year or a "unlimited site-wide agreement," starting at $40,000 per year.

Sun said the Fall 2008 release is scheduled to be commercially available within the next 30 days. ®
