  • Client Connections: Lists the active and sleeping MySQL client connections; adds the ability to kill statements and connections; shows additional connection details and attributes. For details, see Section 4.8, “Client Connections”.

  • Performance Dashboard: Provides quick views of MySQL performance on key network, server, and InnoDB metrics. For details, see Section 4.9, “Performance Dashboard”.
