In technical terms Monyog is basically a very low footprint web server. As such it has much in common with popular web-servers like Apache, IIS, Lighttpd etc., but there are also important and significant differences.
... that is optimized for Monitoring MySQL servers.
Monyog is a dedicated and specialized server program for collecting and storing information concerning MySQL servers and the systems on which they are installed. You cannot use it to display your own webpage. It is 'locked' to display the pages that the Monyog program is designed for.
Monyog uses state-of-the-art web technology.
Monyog connects to MySQL directly: no JAVA, no PHP, no 'agents' install required.
Also unlike other web-servers Monyog has the MySQL client code (the C-API) 'compiled in'. It can connect to MySQL directly without depending on any sort of external code (PHP, JAVA or whatever) as other web-servers do. Also, Monyog does not make use of any 'agents' on the computers where the MySQL servers are running. You install Monyog on one computer and that is it!
Monyog has a built-in high-performance database.
Further! Monyog has built-in high-performance embedded database. Whatever server parameters are retrieved from the MySQL servers are also stored in that database. Various ways to display 'counters' or 'metrics' based on these data are provided.
Monyog is compatible with all modern browsers.
All you need, to view the results that Monyog throws up, is an Internet browser which is capable of handling AJAX. Monyog has been tested on Internet Explorer (from v5.5), Mozilla Firefox (from v1.0), most other Mozilla browsers and all recent Opera browsers. Further Monyog uses Flash to generate real-time graphs. You only need to have the respective plug-ins for your browser installed.
