MySQL Enterprise Monitor User Interface: Manage Servers

The Manage Servers tab provides a list of servers, organized by groups, in a similar fashion to the main server navigation list. For each server, the following information is displayed:

You can search and filter the server list by using the fields and pop-ups at the top of the list. You can filter using one or more of following techniques:

After you make you selection, use the filter button to filter the server list. To reset your selections to show everything, click reset.

Using the list of servers, you can create groups to more easily manage and monitor your servers according to the departments, applications or other groupings that you may want to use. For information on how to create and modify groups, see Section 2.8.3.2, “Grouping Servers”.

You can also perform simple administration on the server within the MySQL Enterprise Monitor framework, including configuring the Query Analyzer, renaming the server (as it appears within MySQL Enterprise Service Manager) or the group name, and updating the information about the server (re-inventory). All of these operations are handled by using hovering over the triangle next to the server name or group.

The pop-up provides a list of options, which are different depending on whether you select an individual server or a group. For a group of servers, you can rename the group, delete the group, or obtain a bundled version of the support diagnostics information. For individual servers, you can modify the Query Analyzer configuration, rename the server, refresh the server inventory, get the support diagnostics information, or turn the event blackout period on and off.
