    1. We need to have Docker 1.12.6 or higher installed.

    PMM Server Installation:

    1. Pull the image.

      docker pull percona/pmm-server:2
    2. Create a persistent data container.

      docker create --volume /srv \
      --name pmm-data \
      percona/pmm-server:2 /bin/true
    3. Run the image.

      docker run --detach --restart always \
      --publish 443:443 \
      --volumes-from pmm-data \
      --name pmm-server \


    Create Volume PMM2
    Devopszones: Create volume

    PMM Server install RHEL8
    devopszones: PMM server Install

     3. Connect to Percona Monitoring and Management:

    https://<IP Address or hostname of your Percona Monitoring and Management Server>/

    Default username/password is admin/admin and should be changed on first login.

    Install Client

    1. Download Percona Repo Package

    wget https://repo.percona.com/apt/percona-release_latest.$(lsb_release -sc)_all.deb

    2. Install Percona Repo Package

    sudo dpkg -i percona-release_latest.$(lsb_release -sc)_all.deb

    3. Update apt cache

    sudo apt-get update

    4. Install Percona Monitoring and Management Client

    sudo apt-get install pmm2-client
    PMM2 client Admin Version
    Devopszones: PMM2 Admin Version

    Connect Client to Server

    Requirements: Client to server communication to secure port on pmm-server (443 assumed) — must be performed on every system to be monitored.

    Register Percona Monitoring and Management client with server

    sudo pmm-admin config  --server-insecure-tls  --server-url=https://admin:<password>@<PMM Server IP>

    PMM2  client Register
    Devopszones: PMM2  client Register

    Setup Postgres

    Create a Percona Monitoring and Management specific user for Monitoring (using the postgres CLI)


    Register the server for monitoring

    sudo pmm-admin add postgresql --username='pmm' --password=<password>

    Easy-install script


    curl -fsSL -O https://raw.githubusercontent.com/percona/pmm/PMM-2.0/get-pmm.sh -O https://raw.githubusercontent.com/percona/pmm/PMM-2.0/.sha256-oneline && \
