Stumbled across a post by Sunny Walia (.. I tried finding your name, but it’s not on your about page, in your title or on the top of your page, so I had to dig through my feedreader) about installing innotop under RedHat. I’ve never heard about innotop before, but after a bit of using the almighty Google (or you could just follow the link in the last part of the linked article), I found the man page for innotop. It’s a tool with an user interface similiar to the regular unix tool top, but for supervising the current state of your innodb tables instead. Several examples of output are given in the man page.
