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.
The MySQL Enterprise Service Manager installation generates a self-signed certificate during the installation process. This certificate generation requires a valid, resolvable hostname. It is not possible to install MySQL Enterprise Service Manager on a host which does not have a valid hostname.
To install the MySQL Enterprise Monitor Agent on Linux systems, you must have the Linux Standards Base (LSB) initialization functions installed. To check the existence of the LSB components, look for an LSB package within your Linux package management environment. For example, on RedHat and other RPM-based distributions:
shell> rpm -qa | grep -i lsb redhat-lsb-3.1-19.fc8.x86_64
shell> dpkg -l|grep -i lsb ii lsb-base 3.2-20ubuntu4 Linux Standard Base 3.2 init script function ii lsb-release 3.2-20ubuntu4 Linux Standard Base version reporting utility
Alternatively, you can use the lsb_release command. Existence of this command normally indicates that the current distribution is LSB compliant.
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 5.7.x version. The minimum supported version is MySQL Server 5.7.9
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 5.5 onwards.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.
