We have tried Oracle tool (MySQL Enterprise Monitor) which allows you to capture and
analyze queries submitted from selected hosts, for a specific time window. The tool and
its user interface were very useful in identifying the volume and heavy queries. 
Licensing and (cost) may be an issue. I have not tried the Percona tool. David.

Well, you can look at the local (session) status, but that would require each session to
actually store those, as you can't access them outside of the session.

Alternatively, you can use tcpdump and wireshark to capture traffic as it goes through the
wire and look at what's happening. Percona Toolkit's pt-query-digest tool can also work
with tcpdump logs.

The general log file will also save you entire sessions, but will do so for EVERY session
that happens - which is going to make for a huge overhead on the busy machine you seem to
be describing, so is definitely not recommended.

Someone also recently posted links towards an init-sql based approach which might be
adapted, and towards a McAfee Auditing module for MyQSL that also seemed to hold some
