5.2.5 Starting/Stopping the MySQL Enterprise Monitor Service on Unix and Mac OS X

The services incorporated into the MySQL Enterprise Service Manager are:

To start, stop, or restart the MySQL Enterprise Service Manager, run the script /opt/mysql/enterprise/monitor/mysqlmonitorctl.sh on Unix or /Applications/mysql/enterprise/monitor/mysqlmonitorctl.sh on Mac OS X with the command-line parameter start, stop, or restart. To see the available options, issue the command mysqlmonitorctl.sh help .

The help parameter produces the following output:

usage: ./mysqlmonitorctl.sh help
./mysqlmonitorctl.sh (start|stop|status|restart)
./mysqlmonitorctl.sh (start|stop|status|restart) mysql
./mysqlmonitorctl.sh (start|stop|status|restart) tomcat

help       - this screen
start      - start the service(s)
stop       - stop  the service(s)
restart    - restart or start the service(s)
status     - report the status of the service

To autostart all the Service Manager components, call the mysqlmonitorctl.sh start from your start-up script.

To start the service:

shell> ./mysqlmonitorctl.sh start
./mysqlmonitorctl.sh : mysql  started
nohup: redirecting stderr to stdout
Starting mysqld daemon with databases from /opt/mysql/enterprise/monitor/mysql/data/
Using CATALINA_BASE:   /opt/mysql/enterprise/monitor/apache-tomcat
Using CATALINA_HOME:   /opt/mysql/enterprise/monitor/apache-tomcat
Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: /opt/mysql/enterprise/monitor/apache-tomcat/temp
Using JRE_HOME:       /opt/mysql/enterprise/monitor/java

If you try to start the service and it is already running, you are warned that the services are already running.

The restart command is equivalent to executing a stop and then start operation.

This script can also check the status of the Tomcat web server or the MySQL repository.

shell> ./mysqlmonitorctl.sh status
MySQL Network MySQL is running
MySQL Network Tomcat is running

After the Service Manager is installed, you can configure the Dashboard, as explained in Section 5.2.7, “MySQL Enterprise Service Manager Configuration Settings and Advisor Installation”.
