A simple post about MySQL Enterprise Manager

The MySQL Enterprise Manager (MEM) is one of the projects I get to work on. It’s a web application for monitoring/debugging/managing MySQL .


For the geeks amongst us, here’s a nice talk given by Mark Matthews. It demonstrates usage scenarios and information about MEM.


And for people who sort of know what a database is. It’s like a “Task Manager” for the MySQL database. It helps us use MySQL better, especially for debugging and tuning purposes.

Future MEM posts

It’s an exciting time to be part of the MEM team, and I expect spending larger chunks of time on the project. I’ll be writing about my MEM experiences in the future, and ideally provide useful tips and examples.

One year at Oracle

I’ve been working at Oracle for about a year now, specifically on MySQL related goodness. It’s a database, and I’m a technical writer. Essentially this means that I write words about MySQL that helps programmers write software, which mostly entails websites. I’m lucky to work with great people and am thankful for that. The documentation team is made up of myself, Jon, John, Paul, and Stefan. And we’ll be adding sixth person soon.

So that’s what I’ve been up to. I forgot about my blog but will begin writing here again. Thanks for being so patient. ;)
