What is MySQL Notifier?

The MySQL Notifier for Microsoft Windows is a tool that allows you to monitor and adjust the status of your local MySQL Server instances through an indicator that resides in the system tray. The MySQL Notifier for Microsoft Windows also gives quick access to several MySQL GUI tools (such as MySQL Workbench) through its context menu. The MySQL Notifier for Microsoft Windows is installed by MySQL Installer, and (by default) will start-up when Microsoft Windows is started. The Tray icon changes, depending on the status. It's green if all monitored MySQL Server instances are running, or red if at least one service is stopped.


A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software installer includes 2 files and is usually about 965 KB (988,160 bytes).
