“AjaxMyTop” is a really useful MySQL monitoring tool.
If you’re on a web-server, and therefore have apache and mysql readily available you can easily implement a live web-page version of the Unix ‘top’ command.
– Download and unpack the ‘ajaxMyTop’ folder into htdocs.
– Configure the config.php file with user (root?), and password
– Then browse to http://localhost/ajaxMyTop/ and wait.
After a few seconds you should at-the-least see a line for ‘show processlist’ generated by the tool.
