From the Client


* We have approx. 200 MySQL servers in production that go from a ~1TB down to a few GB, usually close to ~100G. But we have databases with tables well over 1B rows. TPS can go up to a few hundred per second.
* We also support, but not actively, dev and test environments. (I don’t know that number.)
* Pager duty, but from our current MySQL DBA: "I rarely get any off-hour calls at all. Maybe a handful a year."


Issues and experience sought


* We're looking for experience with at least MySQL 5.1 but preferably 5.5.
* Looking for highly available production environment experience with master-master set-ups, not just master-slave environments, as taking the master offline is not a possibility.
* Must know how to detect / repair a slave out of sync
* Must have experience with monitoring software other than ‘home grown’ scripts. While there is nothing wrong with this, it shows a lack of depth about monitoring a MySQL installation the size of ours."
