How to Monitor MySQL Using SCOM and BridgeWays Management Pack

What is MySQL? A MySQL is a freely available open source Relational Database Management System (RDBMS) that uses Structured Query Language (SQL). MySQL database has two fundamental elements. One is a set of database files that are physically resident on a drive. These files store the permanent data of the database. The second element is the “instance,” which is a set of processes running in a computer’s memory. SCOM can’t be able to monitor MySQL properties very efficiently. Bridgeways MySQL management pack adds capabilities to SCOM/OpsMgrs to monitor MySQL DBs.

  1. I have received below alert from MYSQL management pack regarding “runas account”

    Alert: MySQL Database: The “Run As” credentials are not set or are invalid.
    Description: A “Run As” account with valid credentials to access the database instance has not yet been assigned.

    Alert context: No credentials are set yet.

    Run as account has access to MYSQL database and mapped by using run as profile. Anything I am missing here?
