The following items are known limitations within MySQL Enterprise Monitor:
The maximum size for each data item stored within the
mysql.inventory table is 64 bytes.
The MySQL Enterprise Agent, when operating for Query Analyzer as a proxy, does not support clients using the MySQL protocol older than MySQL 5.0.
The MySQL Enterprise Agent, when operating for Query Analyzer as a proxy, affects the authentication of clients. As the proxy is the real client connecting to the backend MySQL server, authenticate using the hostname of the proxy, not the original client.
Fonts used for MySQL Enterprise Service Manager graphs might not be displayed properly if a required font is missing.
To specify a custom font, you set a custom property within the
embedded MySQL Server to a known working font. Connect to your
embedded MySQL Server using the information provided by the
configuration_report.txt file. Once
connected, execute the following statement:
mysql> INSERT INTO map_entries VALUES (1,'Helvetica','graph.font');
Helvetica with the font to use.
The font used for graph rendering is selected as follows, in this order:
The user override value.
The MySQL Enterprise Service Manager default of Arial.
The graph engine default of SansSerif.
You cannot monitor more than one MySQL Enterprise Dashboard instance hosted on the same machine simultaneously within the same browser, even if each MySQL Enterprise Dashboard uses a different port for access. The effect of this limitation can be more significant on certain browsers.
When monitoring multiple MySQL instances with one MySQL Enterprise Agent, if any of the MySQL instances are down when the agent is started, the agent does not attempt to reconnect to the servers. This could lead to indications that MySQL instances were down when in fact they were running and available. To avoid this problem, ensure all of the monitored instances are available before starting the agent.
