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 MariaDB Connector/C '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 a web browser that is capable of handling AJAX. This has been tested on Google Chrome, Internet Explorer (versions 11.09 and later), Mozilla Firefox and related browsers, and all recent releases of the Opera browser.
