This is the homepage of the MySQL Monitoring Plug-in for Oracle Enterprise Manager 10g and 11g Grid Control, a development project sponsored by The Pythian Group. The plug-in extends monitoring capabilities of Grid Control so that DBAs with heterogeneous environments can monitor MySQL systems using the same tool they use for Oracle products such as Oracle Databases and Application Servers.
With this plug-in, a DBA can add a new MySQL target just as they can an Oracle database. Oracle Enterprise Manager Agent doesn’t have to be running on the same host as the monitored MySQL database. I.e., remote monitoring of the MySQL database using one or two agents is possible. This is very important as many administrators prefer to keep server software stack at bare minimum whereas Oracle Agent is often considered somewhat heavy and bulky to install.
MySQL targets behave in the same way as any other Grid Control targets, including availability monitoring, performance metrics collections, configurations management, alerts notifications, and reports.
The datasheet is available here.
Oracle has certified this plug-in as the official MySQL plug-in for Oracle Grid Control.

The plug-in is distributed as a Management Plug-in Archive (MPA) — a .jar file that can include one or more Management Plug-ins. The file is zipped so make sure you unzip it before installation and importing it to the Grid Control.
Issues with a specific release, new feature requests and etc. can be posted on the blog posts in category MySQL Plug-in for Oracle Grid Control.
