This section describes the installation prerequisites.
It is not recommended to install the
MySQL Enterprise Monitor Proxy and Aggregator as
is recommended to create a user specifically for the Proxy and
Aggregator and install the products as that user, usually the
mysql user. The same is true for the
MySQL Enterprise Monitor Aggregator installation.
For MySQL 5.5 and earlier, the MySQL client-application user
SELECT privileges on the
mysql.inventory table. This table contains
the server UUID which is required to report the Query Analyzer
data to the MySQL Enterprise Service Manager. Use the
GRANT statement. For example:
mysql> GRANT SELECT on mysql.inventory to 'user'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'password';
This privilege is not required for MySQL 5.6 or higher, as the
mysql.inventory table is not created.
