Adding a ProxySQL host

Use the proxysql alias to enable ProxySQL performance metrics monitoring.


pmm-admin add proxysql --username=admin --password=admin

where username and password are credentials for the monitored ProxySQL access, which will be used locally on the database host. Additionally, two positional arguments can be appended to the command line flags: a service name to be used by PMM, and a service address. If not specified, they are substituted automatically as <node>-proxysql and

The output of this command may look as follows:

pmm-admin add proxysql --username=admin --password=admin
ProxySQL Service added.
Service ID  : /service_id/f69df379-6584-4db5-a896-f35ae8c97573
Service name: ubuntu-proxysql

Beside positional arguments shown above you can specify service name and service address with the following flags: --service-name, and --host (the hostname or IP address of the service) and --port (the port number of the service), or --socket (the UNIX socket path). If both flag and positional argument are present, flag gains higher priority. Here is the previous example modified to use these flags for both host/port or socket connections:

pmm-admin add proxysql --username=pmm --password=pmm --service-name=my-new-proxysql --host= --port=6032
pmm-admin add proxysql --username=pmm --password=pmm --service-name=my-new-proxysql --socket=/tmp/proxysql_admin.sock
