The MySQL Enterprise Service Manager is the core element of the MySQL Enterprise Monitor. The installation process for this element also includes some supplemental components:
Apache Tomcat (always)
Java VM (always)
MySQL Server, for repository (optional; you can use an existing MySQL instance instead)
An integrated MySQL Enterprise Monitor Agent, that initially monitors the MySQL Enterprise Service Manager's host and MySQL instance (repository), but it can also be configured to monitor remote MySQL instances.
It is recommended to install an Agent on each host that is monitored.
During installation, default values are shown for user names and ports, for your convenience. You can choose different values. The installer detects ports that are already in use and lets you select different ports.
During installation, versions of MySQL and Tomcat are installed onto the machine, using default values for network ports that are different from standard installation for these applications. You can select different port numbers during installation, to avoid conflicts or to follow a company standard.
All the installations share the same basic configuration parameters that you confirm during installation. Before you start your installation, review the section on these common parameters, then the section specific to your installation platform:
For details of the common parameters, see Section 3.3.1, “Service Manager Installation Common Parameters”.
For Unix/Linux, see Section 3.3.2, “Installing the Service Manager on Unix and Linux”.
For Windows, see Section 3.3.3, “Installing the Service Manager on Windows”.
