Extended observability to agentless monitoring on MySQL using ProcFS UDF plugin

Monitoring is a fundamental part of a DBA's daily activities. We must understand how the workload uses limited resources such as memory, CPU, and disks. In this talk, we will cover the ProcFS UDF plugin, which is open-source and designed to provide access to the Linux performance counters by running SQL queries against MySQL 8.0.

Using the Proc FS plugin, we can extend the monitoring capabilities of databases that cannot run a local agent. That is particularly useful for those who are using DBaaS as well as for companies that have separate teams responsible for operating system and database operations.
