This chapter describes the process of installing the MySQL Enterprise Monitor on all operating systems.

Installation Sequence

A working installation requires installing:

The Agent inspects a specific MySQL server, and transmits health and usage data back to the Service Manager. The Advisors interpret the results, which are displayed in the browser-based MySQL Enterprise Monitor User Interface.

After installing and starting the Service Manager and Agents, configure the settings in the MySQL Enterprise Monitor User Interface, as explained in Section 3.3.7, “MySQL Enterprise Service Manager Configuration Settings and Advisor Installation”.
