MySQL Enterprise Monitor 8.0.1 has been released
Posted by: Andy Bang
Date: July 24, 2018 03:10PM

We are pleased to announce that MySQL Enterprise Monitor 8.0.1 is now
available for download on the My Oracle Support (MOS) web site. It
will also be available for download via the Oracle Software Delivery
Cloud in a few days. MySQL Enterprise Monitor is the best-in-class
tool for monitoring and management of your MySQL assets and is
included with your MySQL Enterprise Edition and MySQL Enterprise
Carrier Grade subscriptions.

This is a maintenance release that includes a few enhancements and
fixes a number of bugs. You can find more information on the contents
of this release in the change log:
(also included at the end of this note for convenience)


* MySQL Enterprise Monitor 8.0 supports monitoring MySQL Server 8.0.11
and later. You can also use MySQL Server 8.0 as an external data
repository for MySQL Enterprise Monitor 8.0.

* Significant improvements have been made to the performance and user
interface of the Query Analyzer. When you click on a SQL statement,
the new Statement Details page enables you to browse all example
statements in the specified time range, rather than just the one
with the worst run time. Drill into any of these examples to see
their individual statistics, literals used, and EXPLAIN plan. Graphs
display the execution pattern of the selected query during the
specified time period.

* The new Global Memory Usage report builds upon the Memory
instrumentation exposed within Performance Schema to provide greater
insight into where memory is being allocated within the MySQL
Instance - not just at the InnoDB Buffer Pool level, but for all
memory allocations, across all connections and threads within MySQL.
The report breaks down memory by allocation type, such as memory
allocated for sorting, the buffer pool, or various other internal
buffers used for statement processing.


You will find binaries for the new release on My Oracle Support:

Choose the "Patches & Updates" tab, and then choose the "Product or
Family (Advanced Search)" side tab in the "Patch Search" portlet.

You will also find the binaries on the Oracle Software Delivery Cloud:

Search "All Categories" for "MySQL" and choose from the results
accordingly. You will find the Enterprise Monitor along with other
MySQL products.

If you are not a MySQL Enterprise customer and want to try the Monitor
and Query Analyzer using our 30-day free customer trial, go to, or contact Sales at

Please open a bug or a ticket on My Oracle Support to report problems,

Changes in MySQL Enterprise Monitor 8.0.1

Functionality Added or Changed

* The usability of the Context and Target selection fields has been
improved. As of this release, you can select a group or asset from
the list or by searching for the name of a group or asset.

The view is no longer refreshed after making a selection in the
Global Summaries field. As of this release, the filter is not
applied until you select an asset from the All Targets field.
(Bug #27019694)

* It is now possible to delete entries from the MySQL Enterprise
Monitor inventory. Deleting assets from the MySQL Enterprise Monitor
inventory does not delete or uninstall assets from their installed
locations. The delete process removes all record of an asset or
group of assets from the internal record of the MySQL Enterprise
Service Manager, only. This enables you to remove entries for
clusters, topologies, and instances which were monitored, but are no
longer in use.

Ensure the asset or group is either not running, or not installed,
before attempting to delete it from the MySQL Enterprise Monitor

For more information, see Deleting Assets from the Command Line.
(Bug #26981023)

* The Oracle JavaScript Extension Toolkit (JET) is upgraded to version
4.2.0 in this release.

* The installers were updated with improved Japanese and Chinese

Also, to better support Japanese installations, the
configuration_report files, generated by the installer, now use the
utf8 character set.

* The OpenSSL libraries used by the MySQL Enterprise Monitor
installers have been upgraded to 1.0.2o.

* The MySQL server, bundled with the MySQL Enterprise Service Manager,
has been upgraded to MySQL 5.7.23.

* The bundled JRE was updated to 1.8.0_181 for both the Agent and
Service Manager.

Bugs Fixed

* Several Advisor tooltips contained broken links and links pointing
to outdated content. (Bug #28171028)

* Changes to the Query Analysis Reporting advisor's configuration were
ignored by the built-in agent of the MySQL Enterprise Service
Manager. The changes were created correctly, but the built-in agent
continued using the default schedule and configuration.

Important: This issue affected the built-in agent of the MySQL
Enterprise Service Manager only. It did not affect the standalone
MySQL Enterprise Monitor Agent.

For information on this distinction, see MySQL Enterprise Monitor
Component Overview.

(Bug #27986851)

* The MySQL Enterprise Service Manager always used the default data
purge values, regardless of what values were specified.
(Bug #27869486)

* MySQL Enterprise Monitor Agent parsed all name=value pairs, even if
they were inside comments, or outside legal config sections in a
Cluster config.ini.

As of this release, only configuration values in legally defined
sections are parsed. (Bug #27844552)

* The Query Analyzer's Configure Query Analyzer link did not link to
the Query Analyzer advisors. (Bug #27844552)

* It was not possible to add or remove sparkline graphs from the
Global Overview. Also, an error was logged if the Reset to Default
button was clicked. (Bug #27733748)

* If a range was selected on the graph for a single instance, and the
Query Analyzer was opened from the selected range, the single
instance selected was replaced by All Targets context selection when
the view reloaded. (Bug #27268314)

* The plus character (+) was added to search criteria on the Query
Analyzer filter's Value field. These characters were added if a
search was performed, the Details page was opened for one of the
seach results, then the Query Analyzer page was opened again.

For example, searching for INSERT INTO `mem__quan` resulted in the
string INSERT+INTO+`mem__quan`.

* The agent upgrade option, --ignore-old-proxy-aggr was present in the
MySQL Enterprise Monitor Agent and documentation. The upgrade from
MySQL Enterprise Agent Proxy Service 2.3 is no longer supported.

* If the configuration of the Query Analysis Reporting advisor was
changed, for example by disabling, then reenabling, the Example
Query or Explain, the Auto-Explain Threshold value was set to zero
instead of to the default value of 100 milliseconds. This resulted
in an error and no new queries were displayed on the Query Analyzer.

* The Example Statements configuration message, displayed if
EXAMPLE/EXPLAIN query was not enabled, incorrectly referenced
performance_schema_events_statements_history_size instead of

* The bottom of the Query Analyzer Details dialog was truncated by the
bottom of the screen if the Graphs tab was selected, making it
impossible to close the dialog.

* The graph range controls on the Query Analyzer graphs, Cancel
selection, Query Analysis, and Zoom to selection were visible,
overlayed on the Statement Details dialog.

* If the data retention policy was set to zero, or a negative value,
and the MySQL Enterprise Service Manager was upgraded, the upgraded
MySQL Enterprise Service Manager failed to start.
