B.3 Installation Requirements

The Service Manager is available for Windows, Mac OS X, and a variety of Unix and Linux operating systems. In most cases, the standard operating system and packages are supported without further libraries and modules. All the required components are installed automatically.


Disk-space usage requirements are approximate for the base application. During usage, the service manager records detailed information about your MySQL servers and environment, and disk space usage increases with time to record this historical data. You can control how long information is stored once the service manager has been installed.

Running MySQL Enterprise Service Manager places a reasonable load on your system, and this load increases linearly as you add more agents monitoring more servers. Ideally, use a dedicated machine for MySQL Enterprise Service Manager rather than running it alongside other applications and services.

Minimum System Requirements

Recommended System Requirements (if monitoring 100 or more MySQL servers)

The Monitor Agent is available for a wide range of operating systems. For an up-to-date list please see the http://www.mysql.com/products/enterprise/. The agent can be used to monitor any MySQL server from version 4.0.x through 5.6.x.
