4.5.2 Setting the Timezone and Locale

If this is the first time that you have launched the MySQL Enterprise Monitor User Interface, you are asked to set your time zone and locale. Choose the appropriate values from the drop-down list boxes. Setting the time zone ensures that you have an accurate time reference for any notifications from the MySQL Enterprise Advisors.


Make sure to set the time zone (and the system clock) correctly because this setting affects the way the graphs display. To change the time zone or locale, see Section 15.4, “User Preferences”.

The locale chosen determines the default language displayed when logging in to the Monitor UI. This overrides the default browser settings whenever this specific user logs in.

After specifying your time zone and locale, the Monitor UI opens on the What's New page.

At this point the MySQL Enterprise Service Manager Repository is being monitored, the built-in Agent is attempting to auto-discover additional MySQL instances on the host, and you are now ready to follow the Chapter 6, Post-installation Considerations guide.
