The AppSignal for Node.js integration for MySQL, using the mysql and mysql2 packages.


The MySQL client library is instrumented automatically by the AppSignal for Node.js package. No additional setup is required to instrument MySQL in your application.


The MySQL integration will send AppSignal a child span for each query. The child span represents the duration of the query and contains the SQL query sanitized.

This instrumentation will also work with any library that depends on the mysql or mysql2 packages as its database adapter, such as Knex or TypeORM.
