The MySQL Enterprise Service Manager is the hub of MySQL Enterprise Monitor: it collects information, stores the information for display, generates warnings and alerts, sends emails and other notifications, and supports the MySQL Enterprise Monitor User Interface as the interface to the system.
MySQL Enterprise Service Manager contains the following:
The MySQL Enterprise Service Manager core, built on top of the Tomcat web server, handles such tasks as collecting information from each MySQL Enterprise Monitor Agent, formatting and inserting information into the repository, and executing the advisors from the MySQL Enterprise Advisors categories.
The data collected by the MySQL Enterprise Service Manager is stored within the MySQL Enterprise Monitor repository. The repository uses a MySQL database, so that MySQL Enterprise Monitor can take advantage of MySQL features such as the InnoDB storage engine.
The MySQL Enterprise Monitor User Interface is the main interface used to interact with MySQL Enterprise Monitor. For more information, see Chapter 11, The User Interface.
