MySQL Workbench

19 October 2020

Efficiently design, manage and document database schemata.

Overview

MySQL Workbench is a next-generation visual database design application that can be used to efficiently design, manage and document database schemata.

Design

MySQL Workbench enables a DBA, developer, or data architect to visually design, model, generate, and manage databases. It includes everything a data modeler needs for creating complex ER models, forward and reverse engineering, and also delivers key features for performing difficult change management and documentation tasks that normally require much time and effort.

Develop

MySQL Workbench delivers visual tools for creating, executing, and optimizing SQL queries. The SQL Editor provides color syntax highlighting, auto-complete, reuse of SQL snippets, and execution history of SQL. The Database Connections Panel enables developers to easily manage standard database connections, including MySQL Fabric. The Object Browser provides instant access to database schema and objects.

Administer

MySQL Workbench provides a visual console to easily administer MySQL environments and gain better visibility into databases. Developers and DBAs can use the visual tools for configuring servers, administering users, performing backup and recovery, inspecting audit data, and viewing database health.

Visual Performance Dashboard

MySQL Workbench provides a suite of tools to improve the performance of MySQL applications. DBAs can quickly view key performance indicators using the Performance Dashboard. Performance Reports provide easy identification and access to IO hotspots, high cost SQL statements, and more. Plus, with 1 click, developers can see where to optimize their query with the improved and easy to use Visual Explain Plan.

Database Migration

MySQL Workbench now provides a complete, easy to use solution for migrating Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Access, Sybase ASE, PostreSQL, and other RDBMS tables, objects and data to MySQL. Developers and DBAs can quickly and easily convert existing applications to run on MySQL both on Windows and other platforms. Migration also supports migrating from earlier versions of MySQL to the latest releases.

It is available as both open source and commercial editions. The Community (OSS) Edition is available from this page under the free software/open source GNU General Public License (commonly known as the "GPL").

A great tool so far :-) But now, v6.3.3 crashes after update from 6.2.5 (OS X 10.8.5).

Seems sluggish under 10.9 Mavericks. Also I see that 6.0.8 is available at dev's web page - but requires Oracle account to login/access/download.

I would love this app if it didn’t crash 90%+ of the time I use it. I don’t know what oracle is trying to pull: Are they trying to make it suck so everyone moves to their platform? If so they are doing bang up job. But some of us hobbyists can’t afford Navicat to avoid the crappiness that in MySQL Workbench. I don’t know how someone could report this being stable. Just looking at the bug fix release notes tell you this is Beta level software at best. I just wasted about 30 minutes trying to setup a new connection that works in the command line just fine. MySQL itself is great, and the command line is do-able for me, but when designing complex Schema a Graphic view saves a lot of time, which is why I use it. However is is so flakey, I have to hit cmd-s while putting together schema and testing so often that I feel like I’m on OS 7.0! I usually don’t use such strong language but Workbench pisses me off, it’s a love-hate relationship where Workbench is the psycho-SO. One minute it's working great than the next you lose an hour of productivity.

Using Navicat 9 normally. That works but it costly as well. At home I prefer MySQL workbench and I have to say that the GUI is a lot nicer. Stable and efficient. However my demands at home are not that high...
