I can’t seem to find info on a tool or methodology for being easily notified when MySQL has table crashes.
It seems wrong for the web application or whatever is connecting to MySQL to have to have built in handlers for every query to detect whether some table has crashed and notify someone about it… shouldn’t there be some low level support for this right in MySQL?
We turned on error logging and can get some of the crashed tables to show up in the error log, but even then you would have to run something to watch the log and notify you. That would be better than nothing, but I don’t find documentation on this kind of thing either in MySQL’s documentation, or being mentioned in other sources.
Are MySQL System Administrators being slighted by the developers?
Am I missing something obvious?
