NAME

       pmdamysql - MySQL and MariaDB database PMDA

DESCRIPTION

       pmdamysql  is  a  Performance  Co-Pilot  PMDA  which extracts live performance data from a
       running MySQL or MariaDB database.

INSTALLATION

       pmdamysql uses a configuration file from (in this order):

       ·   /etc/pcpdbi.conf

       ·   $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/mysql/mysql.conf

       This file can contain overridden values (Perl code) for the settings listed at  the  start
       of pmdamysql.pl, namely:

       ·   database name (see DBI(3) for details, default is "DBI:mysql:mysql")

       ·   database username (default is "dbmonitor")

       ·   database password (default is "dbmonitor")

       ·   login account (default is "pcp")

       On  some versions of MariaDB (10+) the performance schema is disabled by default, and must
       be  enabled  for  the  PMDA  to  function.   This  is  achieved  by  adding   the   string
       "performance_schema" into the "[mysqld]" section of the MariaDB configuration file (either
       my.cnf or my.ini).  The "SHOW ENGINES" SQL statement shows  support  for  the  performance
       schema.

       Once these initial setup actions are complete, you can access the names and values for the
       mysql performance metrics by doing the following as root:

             # cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/mysql
             # ./Install

       To uninstall, do the following as root:

             # cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/mysql
             # ./Remove

       pmdamysql is launched by pmcd(1) and should never be executed directly.  The  Install  and
       Remove scripts notify pmcd(1) when the agent is installed or removed.

Binary Status values in text

       Some of the status values are in the form of YES/NO or ON/OFF.

       Since  these cannot be interpreted by tools like pmie(1), they have been duplicated with a
       _num extension and the values of 1 (YES/ON) or 0 (NO/OFF).

   Eg:
       ·   mysql.slave_status.slave_io_running

       ·   mysql.slave_status.slave_io_running_num

FILES

       /etc/pcpdbi.conf
           configuration file for all PCP database monitors

       $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/mysql/mysql.conf
           configuration file for pmdamysql

       $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/mysql/Install
           installation script for the pmdamysql agent

       $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/mysql/Remove
           undo installation script for the pmdamysql agent

       $PCP_LOG_DIR/pmcd/mysql.log
           default log file for error messages from pmdamysql

PCP ENVIRONMENT

       Environment variables with the prefix PCP_ are used to parameterize the file and directory
       names  used by PCP. On each installation, the file /etc/pcp.conf contains the local values
       for these variables.  The $PCP_CONF  variable  may  be  used  to  specify  an  alternative
       configuration file, as described in pcp.conf(5).
