The MySQL Notifier is a tool that enables you to monitor and adjust the status of your local and remote MySQL Server instances through an indicator that resides in the system tray. The MySQL Notifier also gives quick access to several MySQL GUI tools (such as MySQL Workbench) through its context menu.
The MySQL Notifier is installed by MySQL Installer, and (by default) will start-up when Microsoft Windows is started.
For notes detailing the changes in each release of MySQL Notifier, see the MySQL Notifier Release Notes.
