    Innotop could be a great tool but is dangerously insecure. It requires that the password either be entered on the command line (and retrievable via .bash_history) or stored in plain text in a config file. The dev of the tool feels prompting for the password in the same manner that mysql’s CLI does would be “hard/impossible/impractical” (his words). Push requests with a fix have been made by a few people but have been ignored. If he’s skimping on the most basic of security features, I cringe to think of what else has been avoided because “it’s hard”.

    This is not a tool that should be used in a production environment.

      Could you not use gpg to secure the password? I’m not familiar with the tool so don’t know if it’s possible.

    You are talking about very specific tools, but have you tried usual things like Pingdom or Anturis, or Cacti or anything like that. I think it is much better to set up such a tool and than monitor the whole system with one tool.
