The supported platforms for MySQL Enterprise Service Manager and MySQL Enterprise Monitor Agent are listed at the following locations:
For platform support updates, see MySQL Product Support Announcements.
The following are recommended:
Ensure that your Service Manager and Agent hosts are synchronized to the same time server. It is important that all times are properly synchronized.
Ensure that your Service Manager and Agent hosts use different SSH host keys before installing.
This section describes the MySQL Server requirements for MySQL Enterprise Monitor installation.
The MySQL Enterprise Service Manager installation includes the latest version of MySQL Server. If you intend to use a MySQL repository other than the one bundled in the MySQL Enterprise Service Manager installation, it is recommended that you use the latest MySQL 5.6.x version.
If you have previously configured a default login path on the same machine on which you are installing MySQL Enterprise Service Manager with the bundled repository, you must delete the
cnfin which the default login details are defined before installing. If a default login path is defined, the installation fails to complete. It is recommended to install MySQL Enterprise Service Manager on a dedicated server.
The Monitoring Agent can monitor any version of MySQL Server from version 5.0 onwards. See Section 5.2, “Creating MySQL User Accounts for the Monitor Agent” for more information on monitoring older versions.Important
It is not possible to monitor pre-GA versions of MySQL 5.7. That is, MySQL versions 5.7.0 to 5.7.5 are not supported. MySQL Enterprise Monitor supports monitoring of MySQL 5.7.6 onwards.
The monitoring Agent always uses
PERFORMANCE_SCHEMA.GLOBAL_STATUSon MySQL 5.7 versions, and supports both modes of
show_compatibility_56from MySQL 5.7.9 onwards.Note
To monitor versions of MySQL 5.7.8,
show_compatibility_56must be set to OFF.
