Monitor MySQL queries with Scout

Robin Ward of Forumwarz has released a MySQL slow queries plugin for Scout that does exactly what you’d expect: sends an alert when a slow query is run.

The alert contains the full query along with the query time:

"Scout Alert"/>

Note that you’ll need to enable slow query logging in your MySQL config file, but that’s just a 2 line change. See the MySQL Slow Queries directory entry for more information.
