Running from Command Line

  1. Launch the PMM Server instance using the run-instances command for the corresponding region and image. For example:

    aws ec2 run-instances \
      --image-id ami-9a0acb8c \
      --security-group-ids sg-3b6e5e46 \
      --instance-type t2.micro \
      --subnet-id subnet-4765a930 \
      --region us-east-1 \
      --key-name SSH-KEYNAME


    Providing the public SSH key is optional. Specify it if you want SSH access to PMM Server.

  2. Set a name for the instance using the create-tags command. For example:

    aws ec2 create-tags  \
      --resources i-XXXX-INSTANCE-ID-XXXX \
      --region us-east-1 \
      --tags Key=Name,Value=OWNER_NAME-pmm
  3. Get the IP address for accessing PMM Server from console output using the get-console-output command. For example:

    aws ec2 get-console-output \
      --instance-id i-XXXX-INSTANCE-ID-XXXX \
      --region us-east-1 \
      --output text \
      | grep cloud-init

Next Steps

Verify that PMM Server is running by connecting to the PMM web interface using the IP address from the console output, then install PMM Client on all database hosts that you want to monitor.
