A MySQL Enterprise Monitor Agent monitors a MySQL server and sends data to the MySQL Enterprise Service Manager. The data is interpreted by the MySQL Enterprise Advisors and displayed in the MySQL Enterprise Monitor User Interface. The following section describes how to install the Agent on all platforms.


Due to changes in TLS support, as of MySQL Enterprise Monitor 3.0.22, it is not possible for the MySQL Enterprise Service Manager to communicate with earlier versions of the MySQL Enterprise Monitor Agent.

MySQL Enterprise Service Manager 3.0.22 can communicate with MySQL Enterprise Monitor Agent 3.0.22, only.
