Upgrading from AppSignal for Node.js 2.x? Read about integration changes between 2.x and 3.x in the Migration Guide.

The AppSignal for Node.js integration for MySQL, using the mysql v2.0+ and mysql2 v1.4.2+ 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.
