MySqlConnector library is alternative driver for connecting to MySql DB from .NET code.
Link https://github.com/mysql-net/MySqlConnector .
We prefer it official driver because it is truly asynchronous and MySqlConnector had better support of dotnet core 2.0 when it was released.
Repository contains custom instrumentation for newrelic, but we were not able to make it work on production.
It would be great if MySqlConnector is supported by NewRelic APM in the same way as MySQL.Data is.
