Note

As of MySQL Enterprise Monitor Agent 2.3.13, the MySQL Enterprise Monitor Agent Installer no longer checks the PATH for a local MySQL Client installation. Instead, the Installer will use the bundled MySQL Client. And as of MySQL Enterprise Monitor Agent 2.3.13, the Installer bundles MySQL client version 5.6.

However, the MySQL Enterprise Monitor Agent Installer for Solaris 9 and Solaris 10 bundle MySQL Client version 5.1.
