|Title||mysql.connections: extended plugin to show currently open connections in addition to maximum parallel connections|
|Checkmk Edition||Checkmk Raw Edition (CRE)|
|Compatibility||Compatible - no manual interaction needed|
The plugin mysql.connections shows the maximum number of parallel connections since the server was started in relation to the maximum number of parallel connections allowed. We have extended this plugin to include the number of currently open connections to the server. This value is shown by the MySQL status variable 'Threads_connected'.
