This chapter describes the process of installing the MySQL Enterprise Monitor on all operating systems. A working installation requires the installation of a MySQL Enterprise Service Manager, the MySQL Enterprise Advisors and one or more MySQL Enterprise Monitor Agents. Simply described, the agent inspects the MySQL server it is monitoring, reports to the Service Manager, and the results are interpreted by the advisors and displayed in the MySQL Enterprise Dashboard for viewing in a web browser.
One Monitor Agent is installed for each MySQL server that is being monitored. The Monitor Agent usually runs on the same machine that hosts the monitored MySQL server but it may run on any machine that has access to both the monitored MySQL server and the MySQL Enterprise Dashboard. The agent reports its findings to the Service Manager and these results are interpreted by Advisors and displayed in the dashboard. The end user opens a web browser to view the information presented in the dashboard. The Service Manager and dashboard run on the same machine and both have access to a local MySQL server installed as part of the MySQL Enterprise Monitor. This server is known as the repository and provides storage for the data provided by the agent.
Installation is a three step process:
Install and start the Service Manager on the monitoring system. See Section 15.3.2, “Service Manager Installation”.
Configure the Service Manager, see Section 15.3.3, “Monitor Agent Installation”.
Start the MySQL Enterprise Service Manager and MySQL Enterprise Monitor Agent instances, and then use the MySQL Enterprise Dashboard to install the Advisors and complete the configuration and installation. See Section 18.104.22.168, “MySQL Enterprise Service Manager Configuration Settings and Advisor Installation”.
For information on the installation requirements for different platforms, see Section 15.11.3, “Installation Requirements”.
