Performance Tuning Tools

I am new to MySQL but I am an Oracle DBA so am familiar with the concepts of how a relational database works. I assume that the fundamentals from Oracle are also present in MySQL, such as a shared database cache, private sorting areas for users who sort data, a SQL area of parsed statements for re-use, etc, etc. If I'm wrong, let me know and I will obviously need to read the mySQL concepts guide to get my bearings, unless anyone can give me a quick overview of the major differences between how MySQL and Oracle work?

My reason for posting is that I have a Wordpress site with MySQL as the backend and I'd really like to have a look under the covers and see what are the slowest parts of the system in order to see if some tweaking would help. It's a hosted DB so I'm not even sure if I owuld be able to access it at a low enough level?

In Oracle I would use the Automatic Workload Repository (AWR) to look at performance over a period of time, identify any bottlenecks at a DB level and see the worst performing SQL queries. Is there an equivalent in MySQL?

What advice would you give me in having a look at this in more detail, such as good docs to read or some advice from someone who uses it day-to-day?

Thanks in advance,
