Installing DEB packages using apt-get

If you are running a DEB-based Linux distribution, you can use the apt package manager to install PMM client from the official Percona software repository.

Percona provides .deb packages for 64-bit versions of popular Linux distributions.

The list can be found on Percona’s Software Platform Lifecycle page.


Although PMM client should work on other DEB-based distributions, it is tested only on the platforms listed above.

To install the PMM client package, follow these steps.

  1. Configure Percona repositories using the percona-release tool. First you’ll need to download and install the official percona-release package from Percona:

    sudo dpkg -i percona-release_latest.generic_all.deb


    If you have previously enabled the experimental or testing Percona repository, don’t forget to disable them and enable the release component of the original repository as follows:

    sudo percona-release disable all
    sudo percona-release enable original release
  2. Install the PMM client package:

    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install pmm2-client
  3. Register your Node:

    pmm-admin config --server-insecure-tls --server-url=https://admin:admin@<IP Address>:443
  4. You should see the following output:

    Checking local pmm-agent status...
    pmm-agent is running.
    Registering pmm-agent on PMM Server...
    Configuration file /usr/local/percona/pmm-agent.yaml updated.
    Reloading pmm-agent configuration...
    Configuration reloaded.
