MySQL Enterprise Monitor 3.3.9 Manual

Chapter 11 Proxy and Aggregator Installation

This chapter describes the Proxy, Aggregator and Connector installations and the installation process for the Proxy and Aggregator components.

The MySQL Enterprise Monitor Aggregator requires a framework, or chassis, to handle the communications between the client application and the MySQL instance. The following frameworks are available:

The following diagram shows a typical MySQL Enterprise Monitor Proxy and Aggregator architecture. In this architecture, the MySQL Enterprise Monitor Proxy and Aggregator installed on the database host. The client application's communication with the database is intercepted by the proxy

Figure 11.1 MySQL Enterprise Monitor Proxy and Aggregator Architecture

Example of a typical Proxy and Aggregator installation. Proxy and Aggregator installed on database host. A client application communicating directly with the proxy, and the aggregator transmitting the collected data to the Service Manager.

Note

The MySQL Enterprise Monitor Proxy and Aggregator does not have to be installed on the same host as the monitored MySQL instance. You can install it on another host.

Important

The MySQL Enterprise Monitor Aggregator is supported by the PHP Connector. The other Connectors do not require the Aggregator and can communicate directly with the MySQL Enterprise Service Manager once configured to do so. For more information on configuring the Connectors, see Chapter 12, Configuring Connectors.
