3.4.6 Starting/Stopping the MySQL Enterprise Monitor Agent

3.4.6.1 Starting/Stopping the Agent on Windows
3.4.6.2 Starting/Stopping the Agent on Mac OS X
3.4.6.3 Starting/Stopping the Agent on Unix

The MySQL Enterprise Monitor Agent can be started and stopped at any time. When not running, information about the current status of your server is not available, and MySQL Enterprise Service Manager provides a warning if an agent and the MySQL server that it monitors is unavailable.

Warning

If you are using Query Analyzer, turning off the agent prevents your applications from communicating with the MySQL server. See Section 4.6, “The Query Analyzer”.
