Monitor your MariaDB or MySQL instances

# For running MariaDB
docker run -p 3307:3306 --detach --name some-mariadb -e MARIADB_USER=example-user -e MARIADB_PASSWORD=my_cool_secret -e MARIADB_ROOT_PASSWORD=my-secret-pw -e MARIADB_DATABASE=exampledb mariadb:latest
# For running MySQL
docker run -p 3308:3306 --detach --name some-mysql -e MYSQL_USER=example-user -e MYSQL_PASSWORD=my_cool_secret -e MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD=my-secret-pw -e MYSQL_DATABASE=exampledb mysql:latest
Running Docker commands
  • Use the Desktop notification channel
  • This configuration will monitor our MariaDB and MySQL instances using the credentials from the Docker commands.
  • It will alert you if the DB is offline for two consecutive checks, and will alert you back if it has recovered.
It’s running!
Our DB is offline!


See you next time!
