B.2 Using the Inventory Page

The Inventory page enables you to view the details of all assets stored in the repository, and to delete obsolete or unused assets.

Deleting Assets

MySQL Enterprise Monitor maintains a record, in the Inventory schema, of all assets detected. As a result, if the network topology changes frequently, the inventory and the MySQL Enterprise Monitor User Interface may contain many unused or obsolete assets. The Inventory page enables you to remove such assets, permanently.

Important

If a current asset, that is one which is actively monitored, is deleted, MySQL Enterprise Monitor rediscovers it as part of the monitoring process.

To delete an obsolete or unused asset, do the following:

  1. Navigate to the asset's page.

  2. Click the Delete button in the left-hand sidebar.

    A confirmation dialog is displayed, asking if you want to delete the asset.

  3. Click Yes to delete the asset, Cancel to return to the asset page.

Important

To delete a host which is currently monitored, you must first, in the MySQL Enterprise Monitor User Interface, stop the monitoring Agent, delete the Agent and Instance, then delete the host using the Inventory page.
