Configure the MySQL App

Once the MySQL app is installed, there are a few more steps to collect data for it.

For the MySQL app, you'll need to create a lookup file by running one of the included search queries and set up a Scheduled Search.

Create the Lookup File

This Lookup file is required for the Slow Queries - Hourly in a Week Panel in the Dashboard MySQL Overview.

To create the Lookup file, run the included search query Slow Query Seven Day Average Count.

Run the query:

  1. Go to Library > Personal.
  2. In the MySQL folder, click the query Slow Query Seven Day Average Count to run it.
  3. The Search page opens.
  4. If you see the Save File Query dialog, click Run.

Once the query is run successfully, it creates the Lookup file at /Shared/MySQL/LastSevenDaysAverage.

To verify that the file was created, open a Search tab and execute the following query:

cat /Shared/MySQL/LastSevenDaysAverage

Create a Scheduled Search

Now you'll need to edit this same search to create a Scheduled Search so that the Slow Query Seven Day Average Count gets refreshed and computed daily.

Edit the Search:

  1. Go to Library > Personal.
  2. In the MySQL folder, find the query Slow Query Seven Day Average Count.
  3. Click the double arrow to the right of the name, and from the menu, select Edit.
  4. On the Save Search AS dialog, click Schedule this search
  5. Make the following changes: 


  • For Run Frequency, select Daily.
  • For At:, select 0:00 (Midnight).
  • For Timerange, enter -14d -8d.
  • For Alert condition, select Send notification only if the condition below is satisfied.
  • For Number of results, select Fewer than < and enter 0.
  • Send email on failure to search owner is activated by default. If you do not want an email if the schedule search fails, deactivate this check box.
  • For Alert Type, select Email.
  • Enter the Recipients email address for this notification.
  1. Click Save.

Once the app is installed and configured, you can publish it to share it with your organization.
