Backup/Recovery

Easily create and manage online MySQL backups using the Workbench GUI for MySQL Enterprise Backup. Simple to setup, run, schedule, and view backups while in progress, this tool helps to quickly put proper backups in place. When its time to restore, the GUIs assesses the history - what, when, and where - and steps a DBAs through the recovery process.

Auditing

Easily enable MySQL Enterprise Audit and see who did what, when, where and how. Using built in filters and text search, DBAs can easily find suspect activity in your audit trails. MySQL Workbench provides a powerful grid view and enables DBAs to quickly page through data and sort across nine attributes such as user, ip, activity type, date and time.

User Administration

Administering users, granting privileges and viewing privilege information has never been easier. Using MySQL Workbench DBAs can visually add users, assign passwords and setup user profiles. Assigning and revoking global and database privileges is as easy as adding and removing privilege items from an available list.

Server Configuration

MySQL Workbench allows DBAs to easily view and edit general and advanced parameters to quickly fine tune MySQL servers.

Server Connections

Improve server management with a comprehensive view of all server connections and visual tree based navigation provides detailed information about server and status variables, including number of threads, bytes sent and received by clients, buffer allocations size, and more.

Export/Import

MySQL Workbench includes visual tools for mysqldump. Easily export/import data by selecting the database schemas and/or tables from the Object Browser. Advanced configurations are available for concurrency controls, backup type, and output formatting.

NEW! Table Data Import/Export Wizard for JSON and CSV
