This chapter contains information about the main sections of MySQL Enterprise Monitor User Interface, how to use the interface, and how to set the different configuration and other settings.

You can open the Dashboard and connect to the MySQL Enterprise Monitor User Interface either using the standard HTTP protocol, or using an SSL connection (HTTPS). By default, you can connect to MySQL Enterprise Monitor User Interface using http://host:18080, where host is the hostname or IP address of the MySQL Enterprise Service Manager. The default SSL URL is https://host:18443. You can override these values during installation. To check the configured values, look at the configuration_report.txt file within your installation directory.

You can configure additional users to have access to your MySQL Enterprise Monitor User Interface. Each user can have a specific privilege level: read-only, restricted from using the Query Analyzer data, or prevented from using any administrator features. For more information, see Section 2.8.4, “Managing Users”.


If you are connecting using SSL, the built-in certificate is self-signed and may be highlighted as 'unsafe' within the browser on initial connection. To prevent problems accessing the site, add an exception for the certificate to your browser for this server.
