2.4 MySQL Cluster Manager Configuration File

Before starting the MySQL Cluster Manager agent, you should make any necessary changes to the [mcmd] section of the agent configuration file, supplied with MySQL Cluster Manager as etc/mcmd.ini in the installation directory. On Linux and similar operating systems, you can edit this file in place; on Windows, it is recommended that you save a copy of this file to a convenient location for which the path does not contain any spaces, such as C:\mcm\data.

A # character in the MySQL Cluster Manager configuration file indicates the beginning of a comment; the comment continues to the end of the line.

The version of this file that is supplied with MySQL Cluster Manager reads similarly to what is shown here:





## Username and password for manager plugin

## Top-level directory for manager plugins information stored on disk

Prior to MySQL Cluster Manager 1.1.1, the [mcmd] section of the configuration file used the heading [mysql-proxy]. The old name is still supported for backward compatibility, but is now deprecated and is thus subject to removal in a future release of MySQL Cluster Manager. For this reason, you should change any [mysql-proxy] section headings in existing configuration files to [mcmd], when upgrading to MySQL Cluster Manager 1.2.4.

A minimal agent configuration file as used in production might look like this:







For more information about these and other options which can be set in the agent configuration file, see Section 3.1, “mcmd, the MySQL Cluster Manager Agent”.
