Scalable, High Performance Java & PHP Cloud Hosting

Posted April 30th, 2013 at 08:30 by Jet Profiler team
When Amazon launched EC2 in 2006, cloud hosting (or Platform-as-a-Service) was born. One interesting newcomer in the field of PaaS is a company called Elastx. They provide easy Java and PHP hosting with automated scaling. Since you only pay for the actual CPU and memory usage, the service becomes very affordable. Their user interface is very simple to use and you are up and running in just a few minutes.

Excluding queries from statistics

Posted March 13th, 2013 at 11:20 by Jet Profiler team
The latest update (v 3.0.9) includes a feature for excluding queries from statistics. To make Jet Profiler ignore certain queries, you need to edit the original query in the application code.

Start the query with /*jp-ignore*/ (no spaces), for example "/*jp-ignore*/ SELECT ... FROM ..."

This will prevent the query from showing up in Top Queries and the other tabs. The query will, however, still affect general preset statistics (such as number of threads running and threads busy). Also make sure that your mysql client library preserves comments - some libraries including the mysql command line client removes comments by default.

Hands on with Jet Profiler

Posted February 28th, 2013 at 16:34 by Jet Profiler team
There are a lot of great articles and reviews written about Jet Profiler and we think it's about time they get a bit of attention. Here's a great article, Hands on with Jet Profiler, that was published yesterday by a company called Monitis.

A few highlights from the article:

"I recorded continuously for more than 2 days and Jet Profiler was as responsive at the end as it was at the start. Only the switching between the graphs seemed to get slower when there is more recorded data. But that seems to be logical. Let’s do the math again here to establish the number of queries dealt with over 2 days i.e. 2 days = 48 hours or 2,880 minutes. And with 12,000 queries a minute we have a staggering 34,560,000 queries recorded in those 2 days."

"Without going through all the great features of Jet Profiler in detail, some of them are really helpful in planning your workload. When using Jet Profiler for a day or more, you can see how the number of queries distributes across the day. Another graph shows you the distribution of read and write queries or the distribution of Select, Update, Insert and Delete queries. All of that gives you a great overview of your usage of MySQL resources."

"As of version 3.0.0 Jet Profiler supports another useful function. MySQL is often hidden behind firewalls, their port is mostly not directly accessible. It is often necessary to manually create an SSH tunnel with port forwarding to reach the MySQL server. Jet Profiler 3.0.0 can now create the SSH tunnel automatically and this great feature makes it way easier to use."
