View as plain text  
We are pleased to announce that MySQL Enterprise Monitor 3.4.1 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 Cluster
Carrier Grade Edition subscriptions.

You’ll find information about what’s new here:
   (also included at the end of this note for convenience)

Highlights of MySQL Enterprise Monitor 3.4 include:

* The Replication Dashboard is extended to provide monitoring support
   for Group Replication, which was introduced in MySQL Server 5.7.17.
   The Topology view provides a visual representation of your group
   replication topologies, and the Status drill downs are updated with
   Group Replication-specific information. The status of the entire
   group is reported on, also showing node failure tolerances and
   whether Group Replication has quorum.

* New Group Replication Configuration and Group Replication Status
   Advisors provide continuous analysis of the condition of your group
   replication topologies. The Configuration Advisor checks for
   misconfigurations which could lead to unstable or insecure
   installations; the Status Advisor continuously monitors for servers
   which go offline or fall out of sync with the other members of the

* The new Table Statistics report utilizes sys schema and its
   schema_table_statistics view to show detailed table statistics in
   both table and treemap forms. Available on MySQL 5.6 and above,
   report details include total latencies, total number of rows
   deleted, total I/O write requests.

* In general, the user interface page-loading times and page
   responsiveness are improved in 3.4. In addition, time series graphs
   are much faster in this release, particularly when you specify a
   long time period. This graph performance improvement is gained by
   continuous aggregation of time series data. If you are updating from
   an earlier version, a one-time aggregation of your historic time
   series data is performed when you first start the Service Manager
   (as shown by a progress indicator next to the System Status

Changes in MySQL Enterprise Monitor 3.4.1

Functionality Added or Changed

* The Replication Configuration advisor now generates an event if
   slave_pending_jobs_size_max or slave_max_allowed_packet are less
   than the source's max_allowed_packet. (Bug #25996472)

* It is now possible to specify an exclusion list of users with global
   privileges on the mysql.user table. This is done using a regular
   expression in the MySQL User Account advisor. Any user not matching
   the defined expression, raises an event.

   Note: This change replaces the Account Has Global Privileges
   advisor, and moves its functionality to the MySQL User Account
   advisor. If you changed the scheduling or thresholds on the Account
   Has Global Privileges advisor, they will be lost after upgrading to
   this version.

   (Bug #17742263)

* The Tomcat server, bundled with the MySQL Enterprise Service
   Manager, has been upgraded to 8.5.14.

* The bundled JRE was updated to 1.8.0_131 for both the Agent and
   Service Manager.

Bugs Fixed

* The Replication dashboard did not correctly represent groups if one
   of the members left the group and MySQL Enterprise Service Manager
   could not monitor that member. MySQL Enterprise Service Manager
   displayed the last known state of the member instead of displaying
   it as Unreachable and greying-out the Group Plugin status.
   (Bug #26136352)

* The Statement Type drop-down list on the Query Analyzer page
   contained incorrectly named entries, formatted as
   form.label.statementType.option.NAME. (Bug #26132066)

* Under certain circumstances, if a custom graph was created, then
   deleted, and the MySQL Enterprise Service Manager was upgraded to
   3.4, the user interface of the upgraded MySQL Enterprise Service
   Manager failed to load. (Bug #26122041)

* A Null Pointer Exception was logged if the Average Statement
   Execution Time advisor was enabled but all its notice thresholds
   were disabled. (Bug #25872561)

* The Query Analyzer's Explain Query tab did not display long queries
   correctly. As of this release, long keys are wrapped on multiple
   lines. (Bug #25517867)

* Under certain circumstances, the last instance of a group was
   truncated in the Group Replication dashboard's Topology view.

* Custom filters which were not edited were displayed as edited on the
   Query Analyzer and graphs pages.

* Under certain circumstances, graphs would not load on the Backup
   dashboard's History tab.

* After an upgrade from MySQL Enterprise Service Manager 3.1, or 3.2,
   to 3.3 or higher, the Backup dashboard's Backup Run Time History and
   Backup Lock Time History displayed zeroes for instances monitored
   since before the upgrade.

* Under certain circumstances, if a overrides were defined on MySQL
   instances in an advisor, both the parent and child schedules were
   evaluated for the overridden instance, instead of child schedule
   only. As a result, duplicate collections were performed and
   incorrect events displayed.
