What is Agent-less monitoring?
Answer this: How does your DBA feel before installing a new component on your production servers?
- Oh no. Not again!
- Are you joking?
- All of the above!
Unlike other Monitoring and Advisory Tools, Monyog does not force you to install 'monitoring agents'' on each of your MySQL hosts. Installing and maintaining monitoring agents can be a complex administration task by itself.
Monyog uses a normal MySQL connection for monitoring MySQL. To collect OS data from remote servers, Monyog uses SSH for Linux. This means Monyog can collect all monitoring data by using remote connections. This is a huge advantage that sets Monyog apart from all other MySQL monitoring and advisory tools.
