Re: identifying unused databases

There is not really any way to do that. Here are some clumsy suggestions:

* Drop the database (after backing it up). If no one complains, that it was dead.

* Turn on the "general log". Let the system run a week. (But watch out for the disk filling up.) Grep through the general log to find all the databases mentioned. Then assume the other databases are dead.

* Change the permissions of all the logins so that they do not have access to the suspected databases. Wait for someone to complain.
