1.2 MySQL Enterprise Monitor Agent

The Agent collects data from the monitored instance and host, and transmits that data to the MySQL Enterprise Service Manager. The Agent can be installed on the same host as the MySQL instance or on a different host.

Important

If an Agent monitors a MySQL instance remotely, it cannot monitor the host and can only collect data from the monitored MySQL instance.

The Agent runs as a service. The data collected by the Agent is defined by enabling, or disabling, MySQL Enterprise Monitor Advisors.
