MySQL Enterprise Monitor no longer supports Mac OS X 10.5.
Functionality Added or Changed
The following advisors and graphs were added, most of which relate to features introduced with MySQL Server 5.6:
The Connector/J plugin now supports
DML with MySQL Server 5.6.3 and above. Earlier
versions of MySQL Server only supported
The Connector/NET plugin would not function with Connector/NET version 6.5.5 or 6.6.5. The current Connector/NET plugin version was updated from 1.0.4 to 1.0.5. (Bug #16370490)
The MySQL Enterprise Agent no longer supports Mac OS X 10.5. (Bug #16250268)
files (due to improper permissions, as '0660' or stricter is
required) now logs these as a permission related errors, and
refers to the required '0660' or stricter requirement.
The bundled OpenSSL library was upgraded from 0.9.x to 1.0.x. (Bug #16219855)
The bundled MySQL Server has been upgraded to version 5.5.29. The previous version was 5.5.28.
Beginning with MySQL Server 5.5.29, Oracle no longer provides binaries for Mac OS X 10.5. Therefore, MySQL Enterprise Monitor no longer supports Mac OS X 10.5 (leopard).
The Connector/J plugin would occasionally emit an exception that related to the "Query Analysis EXPLAIN Thread Pool." (Bug #15968762)
SHOW INNODB STATUS query was
updated for the "Too Many Concurrent Queries Running" advisor,
and it is now written as
SHOW ENGINE INNODB
On Solaris, MySQL Enterprise Agent would sometimes crash during startup
--agent-run-os-tests) while CPU
information was being gathered.
The Upgrade Advisor was updated to check for Oracle Bug #14636528 (MySQL Bug #66819), which is titled "InnoDB Change Buffering Is Not Entirely Crash-Safe." (Bug #15948756)
On Microsoft Windows 8, the icons were updated for the add/remove programs menu, the start menu, and tiles interface. (Bug #15837695)
The MySQL Enterprise Agent Installer no longer checks for a MySQL Client
on the host, as the Installer will always use the bundled MySQL
Client. Before it would check the local
for the MySQL Client, and use it if found.
MySQL Client 5.6.10 is bundled.
The agent Uninstaller would not remove the bundled MySQL Client library if the --createaccount option was used during the agent installation via the command-line. (Bug #15850473)
The Windows 8 operating system was reported as Windows 7. (Bug #14849158)
The Query Analyzer reported an inaccurate value for "bytes" and
"rows" if the result set contained a
value in the first column.
The MySQL Enterprise Agent would not properly report memory usage if running inside a Solaris zone. 64-bit versions of Solaris is now supported. (Bug #14810099)
The "Excessive Number of Long Running Processes Locked" rule now supports Metadata locking, when before the rule only looked for sessions with a state of "Locked." Metadata locking exists as of MySQL Server 5.5.3. (Bug #14766751)
MySQL Enterprise Service Manager could not be installed using MySQL Server 5.6 as the internal MEM repository, as the installation wizard did not detect the requirements for InnoDB and partitioning support. (Bug #14698648)
On Microsoft Windows, the
MySQLEnterpriseTomcat registry keys were not
removed when MySQL Enterprise Service Manager was uninstalled.
have_innodb variable is no longer used,
because it does not exist as of MySQL Server 5.6.1. There is no
change in Advisor behavior.
The Installer/Upgrader would allow newline characters in the MySQL server password during setup, but MySQL Enterprise Monitor would fail to use them properly. (Bug #14381330)
Upgraded the bundled Tomcat Native, APR, and OpenSSL applications.
The bundled MySQL Client with MySQL Enterprise Agent has been upgraded to version 5.6.10. The previous MySQL Client version was 5.5.16.
This allows the MySQL Enterprise Agent to support MySQL Server 5.6 features, such as the SHA-256 Authentication Plugin.
