Percona Monitoring and Management 1.17.2

Date:October 24, 2019

PMM (Percona Monitoring and Management) is a free and open-source platform for managing and monitoring MySQL, MongoDB, and PostgreSQL performance. You can run PMM in your own environment for maximum security and reliability. It provides thorough time-based analysis for MySQL, MongoDB, and PostgreSQL servers to ensure that your data works as efficiently as possible.

One of the improvements in this release is a substantial increase in available storage space for the AMI images, which allows now to reserve space for about 10 instances with 30 days retention.

Note

The size is increased for new installations only. The size of any existing installations can be increased in the usual way.

Another improvement is related to the Tooltips for the MySQL InnoDB Compression dashboard, which were updated by providing a description of what the graphs display, along with links to related documentation resources:

Besides these improvements, PMM 1.17.2 release provides fixes for a large number of vulnerabilities. Three fixed vulnerabilities have the Prototype Pollution type: CVE-2019-10747 (in set-value package), CVE-2019-10746 (in mixin-deep), and CVE-2019-10744 (inlodash). We have also fixed WS-2017-3737 (shelljs vulnerable to Command injection), CVE-2019-15043 (Grafana incorrect access control vulnerability), CVE-2019-8331 (possibility of the cross-site scripting in Bootstrap), WS-2019-0100 (fstream library vulnerable to Arbitrary File Overwrite), and CVE-2018-20834 (Improper Link Resolution Before File Access vulnerability in node-tar).

Also, PMM 1.17.2 is now based on Grafana 5.4.5.
