Percona Monitoring and Management (PMM) is a free, open-source monitoring tool for MySQL, PostgreSQL, MongoDB, and ProxySQL, and the servers they run on. PMM helps you improve the performance of databases, simplify their management, and strengthen their security.

This documentation is for the latest release: PMM 2.16.0

With PMM, you can:

  • Visualize a wide range of out-of-the-box system performance metrics
  • Collect and analyze data across complex multi-vendor system topologies
  • Drill-down and discover the cause of inefficiencies, anticipate performance issues, or troubleshoot existing ones
  • Watch for potential security issues and remedy them

PMM Server

PMM Server is the heart of PMM. It receives data from clients, collates it and stores it. Metrics are drawn as tables, charts and graphs within dashboards, each a part of the web-based user interface.

PMM Client

PMM Client runs on every database host or node you want to monitor. The client collects server metrics, general system metrics, and query analytics data, and sends it to the server.
