4.2.2 Supported Platforms

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.

General Platform Recommendations

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.

  • On Linux platforms, ensure you have both the libaio and libnuma libraries installed. The installer checks for both.

  • 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 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:

$> rpm -qa | grep -i lsb

Under Debian/Ubuntu:

$> 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.

MySQL Requirements

This section describes the MySQL Server requirements for MySQL Enterprise Monitor installation.

  • 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 MySQL Enterprise Service Manager installation, see Section 4.2.4, “MySQL Enterprise Monitor Repository” for more information.

  • As of MySQL Enterprise Monitor 8.0.20, the MySQL Enterprise Service Manager installer, on Microsoft Windows, checks for the presence of the Microsoft Visual C++ 2015-2019 Redistributable (x64) - 14.25.2850508™ or later and if it is not present, installs it.

    MySQL Enterprise Service Manager installation on Microsoft Windows can not proceed without this redistributable.


    If you do not intend to use the bundled MySQL Server, but intend to use an existing, external repository, you must manually download and install this redistributable.

  • 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 cnf in 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.
