MySQL Enterprise Monitor 8.0.16 Manual

Chapter 2 What's New

This section provides a high-level overview of the differences between this release and its predecessor.

MySQL Enterprise Monitor Versioning

MySQL Enterprise Monitor 8.0 was reversioned as MySQL Enterprise Monitor 8.0.14 to bring it inline with the MySQL Server and product suite versioning. Versions 8.0.4 to 8.0.13 were skipped.

MySQL 8

MySQL Enterprise Monitor now includes MySQL 8. The bundled repository has been upgraded to the latest MySQL server release.

Query Analyzer

The user interface of the Query Analyzer has been completely redesigned. Building upon Oracle's JavaScript Extension Toolkit (JET) framework, this new design improves navigation in the Query Analyzer and introduces advanced configuration options which enable you to customize, sort, and filter the data displayed.

New Asset Views

Three new asset views are added in this release, Agents, Hosts, and NDB Clusters. These views enable you to examine the configuration and current status of these assets in great detail.

The Agents view configuration view enables you to view all MySQL Enterprise Monitor Agents currently registered with the MySQL Enterprise Service Manager.

The agents are displayed on individual lines, with brief summaries of their current status, number of assets monitored by the agent, and last contact.

The Agent details view displays all relevant information for that agent. This information includes JVM configuration and status, details on all MySQL connections, processes, and instances, and detailed information on the host's operating system.

Deleting Assets from the Inventory

It is now possible to delete assets from the MySQL Enterprise Monitor inventory from the user interface. You can delete individual assets or entire groups of related assets.

Important

Deleting assets from the inventory does not delete or uninstall assets from their installed locations. The delete process removes all record of an asset or group of assets from the internal record of MySQL Enterprise Service Manager, only. This enables you to remove entries for clusters, topologies, agents, hosts, and instances which were monitored, but are no longer in use.

It is also possible to multi-select assets for deletion.
