The MySQL Enterprise Monitor Agent performs the following tasks:

Note

The MySQL Enterprise Monitor Agent consists of a number of different components, such as the Aggregator and the Proxy. The documentation sometimes refers to these components by name to describe the functionality, configuration, and deployment of specific parts of the Agent.

The agent is a general purpose service that provides the basis for all this functionality and is the key component of MySQL Enterprise Monitor as it provides the MySQL Enterprise Service Manager with the information about each individual MySQL server.

Each MySQL Enterprise Monitor Agent requires a UUID to uniquely identify the MySQL Enterprise Monitor Agent to the MySQL Enterprise Service Manager. This UUID is independent of the UUID assigned to each monitored server. Do not copy the UUID from one instance of the agent to another, as that would cause duplicate agent UUID exceptions.

When the agent first starts, it performs the following operations:

Once running, each MySQL Enterprise Monitor Agent periodically collects information from the monitored MySQL server and sends it to MySQL Enterprise Service Manager.
