If this is the first time logging in to the Monitor UI, you see a screen similar to the following:
Figure 3.5. MySQL Enterprise Monitor: First-time setup for the MySQL Enterprise Monitor User Interface
Use this screen to perform the following tasks:
Create a user name and password for the Manager User. This is for logging into and viewing the MySQL Enterprise Monitor User Interface, as well as administering the configuration of the MySQL Enterprise Service Manager, such as adding new users and configuring settings.
Create a user name and password for the MySQL Enterprise Monitor Agent. This is a user that each Agent can use to login to the MySQL Enterprise Service Manager.
Configure your Data Purging Behavior preferences.
Although these settings control the amount of disk space used, changing them later to lower values may not reclaim disk space automatically, as you would have to dump-and-reload the table, and InnoDB tables never shrink.
Configure your preferences for Online Updates.
In the Create Manager User section of this screen, enter credentials for the Monitor UI administrator. This creates the Manager user described in Section 3.1.3, “Users Created on First Log-in”. Record the user name and password, as these credentials are required for any future login.
In the Create Agent User section of this screen, enter the credentials for the agent. This is the user described in Section 3.1.3, “Users Created on First Log-in”. The agent must log in to report its findings. Record the agent's credentials; this information is required when installing the agent.
After specifying all settings, click the Complete Setup button. When you log in, a message reports that the Advisors are now scheduled.
