Functionality Added or Changed
An MySQL Instance Identity Source option
was added to the MySQL Process Discovery
Advisor. This sets the
option which determines how the UUID is defined for a discovered
A search filter was added to the Advisors page. Advisors may now be filtered by Advisor, Group, and/or Asset name. (Bug #17656494)
The Agent now watches for changes in
log4j.properties every 60 seconds, and
applies the changes if found.
The Duplicate Server UUID Advisor was added. It attempts to find MySQL instances with the same UUID, and generates an Event if one is found. An example scenario is when a MySQL instance is cloned to a different host, but without the cloned MySQL instance's UUID being updated. MySQL instances with the same UUID are monitored and reported as a single MySQL instance in MySQL Enterprise Monitor.
A large Asset Selector would not load in Internet Explorer. (Bug #18162122)
Attempting to view a statement history graph in the drill-in details pop-up for a particular query analyzer statement would return a 404 error, as the corresponding page was renamed. (Bug #18075985)
mysqlmonitorctl.sh would report an
error similar to "su: illegal option – c" on FreeBSD, Mac OS
X, and Solaris.
config.bat utility now manually executes
"umask 066", as opposed to executing
setenv.sh. This affects the initial
creation of log files.
On RDS systems, the "super" user lacks privileges to execute
SET SESSION sql_log_bin=0, which causes
monitoring to fail. Disabling the binary log is no longer
required when monitoring MySQL server 5.6+, as the
server_uuid variable is used instead.
On Mac OS X, the MySQL Enterprise Service Manager Installer would install a 32-bit MySQL server on a 64-bit system. (Bug #17936588)
Deleted Agents would sometimes remain visible in the Events tab's Asset Selector. (Bug #17985573)
The Slow Query Log Not Enabled Advisor text
was updated, to adhere to the preference towards and MySQL
Server 5.6.1 deprecation of
--log-slow-queries in favor of the
Closing an event from the Events removes the Event entry from the screen. Before the closed Events would remain visible until the "Refresh" action was executed. (Bug #17851337, Bug #71003)
The configuration report for the MySQL Enterprise Service Manager upgrade installer would incorrectly detect differences between the MySQL Enterprise Monitor repository and recommended configuration values, when the configuration setting did not require a value. (Bug #17847279)
Caching and resource restraints were added to the LDAP authenticator for negative responses, which helps reduce the number of service requests to the respective LDAP servers when clients are failing authentication. (Bug #17709023)
The Query Analyzer configuration documentation was improved in the MySQL Enterprise Monitor User Interface. (Bug #17645857)
Installing MySQL Enterprise Service Manager no longer creates separate Service Manager accounts (for the SM repository) with hosts defined as '::1' and 'Fully Qualified Domain Name', but continues to use '127.0.0.1' and 'localhost'. (Bug #17559057, Bug #70504)
libsigar library was updated so the Agent
can build on SLES 10.
On Mac OS X, general improvements were made to the Agent and Service Manager Installer for both the upgrade and installation processes, and the services now automatically start. (Bug #17550529)
General improvements were made to the impact of gaps in graphs. (Bug #17551530)
MySQL Instance Identity Source information
was added to the Diagnostic Report, in
Documentation improvements were made to the Service Manager configuration step of the Agent Installation wizard.
Due to performance reasons, MySQL Enterprise Monitor no longer includes Query Analyzer data in MySQL instance support diagnostic reports.
host_plus_datadir value for the
mysql-identity-source configuration option
was not preserved in the MySQL Enterprise Monitor User Interface. Editing a connection
would show the default UUID source option.
The CPU related graphs and advisors were simplified and improved, and new statistics (nice, irq, soft irq, and stolen) were added.
Hovering over a series on a graph now shows the time range for the point (where appropriate) instead of always showing a specific timestamp.
The CPU Advisor did not gracefully handle an operating system changing the number of CPUs.
