15.6.2.7. MySQL Enterprise Service Manager Configuration Settings and Advisor Installation

The Enterprise Dashboard is the web-based interface to the Service Manager. The procedure for starting the dashboard is identical for all platforms. From the dashboard, you can configure the settings necessary for receiving updates from MySQL Enterprise.

If you installed the Service Manager using a graphical interface, you have the option of launching the dashboard on the final installation screen (as long as the Launch MySQL Enterprise Monitor Now checkbox is checked).

Otherwise, you can view the dashboard by typing http://localhost:18080/Auth.action into the address bar of your web browser. To see the host name and port to use, check the configuration_report.txt file.

Under Windows, you can also open the dashboard by choosing the MySQL menu item and finding the MySQL Enterprise Monitor entry. Under this entry, choose Start Service Manager.

15.6.2.7.1. Initial Dashboard Log-In

If this is the first time logging in to the dashboard, you see a screen similar to the following:

Figure 15.9. MySQL Enterprise Monitor: Initial Dashboard Log-In

MySQL Enterprise Monitor: Initial
            dashboard log-in

Use this screen to perform the following tasks:

  • Set up your MySQL Enterprise credentials.

  • Set up your My Oracle Support credentials.

  • Create a user name and password for the dashboard administrator.

  • Create a user name and password for the Monitor Agent.

If you have been provided with an Advisors file, click the Browse button and locate these files. The advisor file is named, AdvisorScript-version.jar. If you do not allow Internet access from the dashboard, you must install the advisors in this way. It is strongly recommended that you install the Advisors at this point, but you may also do so later. For instructions on doing this, see Section 15.6.2.7.3, “Installing, Updating or Upgrading Advisors After Initial Login”.

If you have Internet access from the dashboard, activate MySQL Enterprise Monitor by supplying your MySQL Enterprise credentials. Enter your email address as the MySQL Enterprise Login and enter and confirm your MySQL Enterprise password. If you specify incorrect credentials, you receive the error message “Unable to connect to verify credentials.

In the Create Administrator section of this screen, enter credentials for the dashboard administrator. This creates the root user described in Section 15.6.1.3, “Users Created on First Log-in”. Record the user name and password, as these credentials are required for any future login.

In the Configure Agent Credentials section of this screen, enter the credentials for the agent. This is the agent user also described in Section 15.6.1.3, “Users Created on First Log-in”. The agent must log in to report its findings. Record the agent's credentials; this information is required when installing the agent.

After specifying all settings, click the complete setup button. When you log in, a message reports how many graphs and advisors were imported.

If importation of the advisor files fails, you see the message:

Unable to import Advisor Jar. You may download the jar
manually from the Enterprise Portal and import it from the 'Check For Updates' page.

In this case, download the advisor file from the Enterprise website and install it as described in Section 15.6.2.7.3, “Installing, Updating or Upgrading Advisors After Initial Login”.

15.6.2.7.2. Setting the Timezone and Locale

If this is the first time that you have launched the dashboard, 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.

Warning

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 15.8.2, “User Preferences”.

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

After specifying your time zone and locale, the dashboard opens on the Monitor tab. For a detailed examination of the Monitor Screen, see Section 15.7, “MySQL Enterprise Dashboard”.

15.6.2.7.3. Installing, Updating or Upgrading Advisors After Initial Login

The Advisors interpret the data sent by the Monitor Agents and display the results in the dashboard. A full set of Advisors is preinstalled with the Service Manager. You can download any new or updated Advisors from MySQL Enterprise.

If you did not install the Advisors when you first logged in to the MySQL Enterprise Dashboard, open the dashboard, find the Advisors tab, and choose the Check for Updates link. Doing this downloads the latest version of the Advisors from the MySQL Enterprise web site. To install the advisors in this fashion, specify your MySQL Enterprise credentials. Find instructions for doing this in Section 15.8.1, “Global Settings”.

If you do not allow Internet access from the dashboard, install the Advisors from a local file. You need an advisor file named AdvisorScript-version.jar. If you do not already have this file, download it from the MySQL Enterprise downloads page. Download the Advisors file to a location that is accessible from the dashboard. Use the Browse button to find the Advisors file and then choose import to load the advisors.
