I use a slow.log logging on my MySQL server, to catch bottlenecks in my script, but at the same time, i use phpmyadmin on this server. My script and pma has different MySQL user accounts and now, when i analyzing the slow.log file, i see a lot of spam from pma queries, is it possible, to configure the MySQL to logging a slow queries only from specific users?

You can try to analyse your slow log with the Percona tool pt-query-digest and use the option :

–filter ‘($event->{user} || “”) =~ m/john/’

Slow log file logs all slow running queries from all users, it's not user specific but you can write your own script by using regex to extract queries only executed by a particular user or ignore queries by users.

You can use MONyog-MySQL monitor which has filter option to ignore queries by user or host.
