This chapter describes the process of installing the MySQL Enterprise Monitor on all operating systems.
A working installation requires installing:
One MySQL Enterprise Service Manager. It stores its data in a database repository. You can use an existing MySQL instance for the repository, or set up a separate instance as part of the MySQL Enterprise Service Manager installation. See Section 5.2, “Installing the Service Manager”.
The MySQL Enterprise Advisors. These are installed as part of the MySQL Enterprise Service Manager install, on the same machine.
One or more MySQL Enterprise Monitor Agents, one for each MySQL server to monitor. See Section 5.3, “Monitor Agent Installation”. Install the MySQL Enterprise Service Manager first, because the Agent installation asks for credentials and network settings that you choose as you install the MySQL Enterprise Service Manager.
To minimize network overhead, you usually install the Agent on the same machine that hosts the monitored MySQL server, but you can install it on any machine that has network access to both the monitored MySQL server and the MySQL Enterprise Monitor User Interface.
The Agent inspects a specific MySQL server, and transmits health and usage data back to the Service Manager. The Advisors interpret the results, which are displayed in the browser-based MySQL Enterprise Monitor User Interface.
After installing and starting the Service Manager and Agents, configure the settings in the MySQL Enterprise Monitor User Interface, as explained in Section 5.2.6, “MySQL Enterprise Service Manager Configuration Settings and Advisor Installation”.
Depending on your configuration and environment, download these files from the Oracle Software Delivery Cloud web site. These include:

One or more MySQL Enterprise Monitor Agent, one for each MySQL Server to monitor. In the typical scenario, where you install the Agent on the same machine as each monitored MySQL server, make a list of the platforms your MySQL servers run on, then download the Agent installer package for each of those platforms. For a new Agent installation, this installer is named
mysqlmonitoragent-. For an upgrade Agent installation, this installer is named
