I understand that conueries are a computed number. I understand it’s something DreamHost has devised. I stated that I was looking for a way to get the numbers that make it up, the connections and queries. I was NOT asking to have the direct conuery number, I know it’s not in some log somewhere.
Now, after looking through tons of logfiles and searching the MySQL documentation website, I’ve managed to find where those two numbers come from for anyone who happens to have the same problem I did, so they don’t have to spend a few days clarifying their question.
–If you query the database using “SHOW GLOBAL STATUS” You will see a variable called “Connections” and one called “Questions”. These are the two numbers you can use. They are, of course, the total number of connections and queries since database startup, so in order to get a number per day you have to write a script to get the current running number at the beginning of the day and the end of the day and then subtract them.
