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:

[mcmd]

plugins=manager

##manager-port=1862

##agent-uuid= 
log-file=mcmd.log
log-level=message
##pid-file= 

## Username and password for manager plugin
##manager-username= 
##manager-password= 

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

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

[mcmd]

plugins=manager

manager-port=1862

manager-directory=/var/opt/mcm-1.3.2

log-file=/var/opt/mcm/mcmd.log

log-level=warning

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”.
