MySQL Monitor Easy to Set Up

Monitoring a MySQL instance was equally easy to set up, after we installed the agent software on the server. Here we chose the server; this information was gleaned from the running agents.

Next we provided the username and password for the MySQL instance that the agent was monitoring. This information was entered while logged into our control panel on the Anturis site.
