Become a ClusterControl DBA: Operational Reports for MySQL and MariaDB

Performing database health checks is a lot more time-consuming than it should be. As a DBA, you have to gather data from multiple places in order to understand the state of your databases. This is why we introduced operational reports in ClusterControl 1.3, where we gather some of the most important data into a single document, which can be quickly reviewed. This new blog post explains how you can make best use of this new functionality in ClusterControl.
