Hipster MySQL Monitoring: Serving a deconstructed PMM

Hipster MySQL Monitoring: Serving a deconstructed PMM

 25 April - 11:30 AM - 12:20 PM @ Ballroom H
Experience level: 
50 minutes conference


Percona Monitoring and Management (PMM) is a wonderful solution, it aims to provide out of the box monitoring and management for your MySQL (and/or MongoDB) environment. By design it's delivered in just two distinct modules, a Docker container for the server components, and a package/tarball for the client components. This session will take a look at the applications used within PMM, such as Prometheus, Grafana, and Percona's Query Analytics tool (QAN), and look at ways these can be installed and configured separately whilst still retaining much of the functionality of PMM. By the end of the session you will have a good understanding of the benefits of the self encapsulated PMM solution for MySQL Monitoring, but should also have a good understanding of how this could be delivered as a multi-container solution using Docker Compose, or how this could be delivered as independent components using Ansible.
