This app allows viewing and investigating data produced primarily from MySQL's global status variables. Saved searches and dashboards exist for the most common points of interest in a production MySQL instance.
Dashboards are provided for:
Two alternative methods of collecting data are provided: a set of scripted inputs (requires Ruby and mysql drivers) or a Python daemon that pushes data to a Splunk TCP input (requires Python and mysql drivers).
See the in-app welcome page for information on support and more detailed instructions for initial configuration.

This app is a great start but has a number of issues that make deployment difficult, so if you don't want to get your hands dirty, wait for the next release!
Bugs: * There are a number of files with hardcoded paths to /opt/splunk/etc/apps/mysql/ and /splunk/splunk/etc/apps/mysql/ which will need to be fixed to match the new apps path of mysqlmonitor, and to match your $SPLUNK_HOME. * The stanzas defined in props.conf didn't work for me (maybe because I'm running 4.3?) but things worked very nicely after I disabled them.
Difficulties: * MySQL 5.0 and earlier is not supported (1 of the 4 checks works) * If you want to monitor multiple servers from a single splunk, you'll need to use the ruby scripts instead of the python daemon. It would be nice if the scripts were also written in python, so that they could be run without any additional dependencies.
