Today's release of innotop 1.4.2 adds major new functionality and significant bug fixes.
Among the changes are quick-filters, more consistent and usable user interface, much better error handling, compatibility with MySQL 3.23 through 6.0, and much more. Everything from the configuration file to the key bindings has been improved.
The innotop MySQL and InnoDB monitor is a powerful interactive console-based tool that lets you see what's happening inside your MySQL server in real time. It's like the UNIX top program for MySQL, on steroids. It can monitor current queries; status information; InnoDB internals including current transactions, deadlocks, foreign keys, row operations, buffers, logs, I/O, semaphores and lock waits; replication status (master and slave both); open tables; and more. It is designed to monitor many servers at once, and has powerful filters, colorization rules and sorting to help you concentrate on what matters. It is a MySQL DBA's best friend.
