12.1 Initial Log-In

If this is the first time logging in to the dashboard, the following page is displayed:

Figure 12.1 Initial setup for the MySQL Enterprise Monitor User Interface

MySQL Enterprise Monitor: Initial setup for the MySQL Enterprise Monitor User Interface

You must perform the following tasks:

  • Create a user name and password for the Manager User. The manager user is used for the initial session, configuring the systems, and the access control list.

  • Create a user name and password for the MySQL Enterprise Monitor Agent. The Agent user credentials are used by every monitoring agent to connect to MySQL Enterprise Service Manager.

    Note

    It is possible to configure additional Agent users should your system require it. For more information, see Chapter 22, Access Control.

  • 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. If your organisation uses a HTTP proxy, you must check the Use HTTP Proxy field, and complete the fields displayed when this is enabled.

In the Create Manager User section of this screen, enter credentials for the Monitor UI administrator. This creates the Manager user described in Section 3.3.3, “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 3.3.3, “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.
