This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

I don't know, it's kind of a vague question. madphp, can you specify what exactly you want to do? –  slhck Oct 20 '11 at 8:11
I have nothing in mind right now. I want a allround good benchmarking tool to log slow queries/find bottlenecks on windows and IIS. –  madphp Oct 20 '11 at 15:00

For Windows/IIS you should stick with "Performance Monitor"

To check slow queries add this to your my.conf

# start slow log
# end slow log

I believe you can set if on the fly using SET GLOBAL on mysql prompt, example:

SET GLOBAL slow_query_log=OFF;
SET GLOBAL log_queries_not_using_indexes=OFF;

You may want to check on Spotlight from Quest software, it gives a nice visual interface to see what is happening on the system... (and are free)
