SQLyog – MySQL GUI 8.4 GA | Redundant Index Finder, Compressed Scheduled Backups & much more..


SQLyog 8.4 happens to be a fairly major release with good number of features & enhancements. Listed below are some worth noting.

  • May it be Query Profiler or Datatype Optimizer, SQLyog has grown beyond the definition of a GUI with these features with intelligence. One such feature that is being unveiled with this release is an option to find redundant indexes. You can find the redundant indexes in a Table with just a click of a button. If found, a ready query is generated to drop the redundant indexes. As you know eliminating redundant indexes improves INSERTs & UPDATEs and also saves hard-disk space.
  • Scheduled Backups can be compressed.
  • If you are one of those users who deal with databases having thousands of objects (tables, columns etc.) this release will definitely add to your productivity as auto-complete has been drastically improved for such databases.
  • You can sort the data of Result set. The sorting is very fast as it is done at the client side unlike Table Data where a query is fired to server for every sort action.

  • Save dialog when closing a connection now has ’Yes to All’ and ‘No to All’ options.
  • Added an option to send a mail alert if an error occurs while executing a ‘maintenance query’ from Notifications Services.
