15.15.3. Installation Requirements

The Service Manager is available for Windows, Mac OS X, and a variety of Unix and Linux operating systems. In most cases, the standard operating system and packages are supported without further libraries and modules. All the required components are installed automatically.

  • Mac OS X Notes

    • The Mac OS X agent is supported for both Intel and PowerPC architecture. The Mac OS X Service Manager is only supported on Intel architecture.

    • Installation requires approximately 450MB of disk space for MySQL Enterprise Service Manager.

  • Windows Notes

    • Installation requires approximately 260MB of disk space for MySQL Enterprise Service Manager.

  • Unix/Linux Notes

    • Installation requires approximately 450MB of disk space for MySQL Enterprise Service Manager.

    • On FreeBSD, you must have bind8 installed.

Note

Disk-space usage requirements are approximate for the base application. During usage, the service manager records detailed information about your MySQL servers and environment, and disk space usage increases with time to record this historical data. You can control how long information is stored once the service manager has been installed.

Running MySQL Enterprise Service Manager places a reasonable load on your system, and this load increases linearly as you add more agents monitoring more servers. Ideally, you should use a dedicated machine for MySQL Enterprise Service Manager, rather than running it alongside other applications and services.

Minimum System Requirements

  • 2 or more CPU cores

  • 2 or more GB of RAM

  • Disk I/O subsystem applicable for a write-intensive database

Recommended System Requirements (if monitoring 100 or more MySQL servers)

  • 4 or more CPU cores

  • 8 or more GB of RAM

  • Disk I/O subsystem applicable for a write-intensive database (RAID10, RAID 0+1)

The Monitor Agent is available for a wide range of operating systems. For an up-to-date list please see the http://www.mysql.com/products/enterprise/. The agent can be used to monitor any MySQL server from version 4.0.x through 6.0.x.

Production support is not currently available for MySQL Enterprise Monitor (Service Manager component) in virtualized environments.
