Changes in MySQL Enterprise Monitor 3.0.7
Functionality Added or Changed
* Network file systems, such as NFS, SMB, and CIFS are now supported.
They are displayed in the asset selector and the Advisors
configuration page for filesystem-related advisors. It is also
possible to override their configuration and filter them for
reports, graphs and events. (Bug #18259946)
* It is now possible to edit the Agent CPU Thresholds in the Agent
Health Advisor. The default value for the embedded agent is 40%.
* The Edit dialog for the following advisors was redesigned for
- Agent Health Advisor
- MySQL Enterprise Backup
- CPU Utilization Advisor
- Filesystem Free Space
The contents of these advisors are now organised using collapsible
* The Database Availability tooltip for Month displayed the data for
Week instead of Month. The graphs displayed the correct information.
* Under certain circumstances, NULL was returned if a non-contiguous
list position was encountered, resulting in a NullPointerException.
If this error occurred, the agent stopped monitoring the server.
(Bug #18204794, Bug #18230493)
* It was not possible to display My Oracle Support information in the
Open Support Issues frame on the What's New page due to an issue
with the MOS 6.8 rollout in February 2014. (Bug #18198557)
* Under certain circumstances, for installations with more than 100
agents, the StrategyReplicationManager thread blocked processing of
all agent threads. (Bug #18196843)
* Agents which were active and available were reported as unavailable
if the system was under heavy load. Emergency events were logged as
a result. This issue often occurred after a system restart. (Bug
* Under certain circumstances, a deadlock occurred if a replication
group was renamed. (Bug #18245772)
* Stacked graphs were reset to line graphs if the page was refreshed.
* Text was displayed incorrectly if the English (Canada) locale was
selected. (Bug #18140344)
* The Support Diagnostics files, generated from the MySQL Instances
dashboard, were very large due to logging of GTID variables which
were constantly changing. This information was also written to the
database, increasing the write load. As of this release, GTID
variables are no longer collected, with the exception of gtid_mode.
Note: The upgrade process does not delete these entries from
* Under certain circumstances, on Linux systems, the CPU evaluation
results were incorrect. This was caused by a Linux kernel issue,
where the CPU tick counter reset, appearing to go backwards. Based
on this inconsistent data, MySQL Enterprise Monitor inferred a very
high CPU usage and generated false-positive alerts. As of this
release, MySQL Enterprise Monitor does not record such tick resets.
If resets occur, they are represented as gaps in the CPU graph, and
the field and delta values are logged at debug level.
* If an unmonitored master was detected, a group update was repeatedly
performed. As of this release, if an unmonitored master is detected,
the group update is not performed.
* On Mac OS X, the agent reported Mac OS X version 10.9 as "Mac OS X
