    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 and install Percona Repo Package

    sudo yum install https://repo.percona.com/yum/percona-release-latest.noarch.rpm

    2. Install Percona Monitoring and Management Client

    sudo yum install pmm2-client

    PMM2 Client Install
    Devopszones: PMM2 client Install

    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


    AWS Configuration

    • You will need your AWS RDS Access Key and RDS Secret Access Key
    • This key should have permission to monitor RDS and it is recommended that you enable "Enhanced Monitoring" for the most robust data
    • You will also need a database username and password with access to login to the RDS instance
    • Your PMM instance will need access to your RDS instance via a TCP port

    Percona Monitoring and Management Configuration

    • From Percona Monitoring and Management Home Dashboard choose PMM menu → PMM Add Instance
    • Choose 'Add an AWS RDS MySQL or Aurora MySQL Instance'
    • Enter your AWS Access Key and Secret Access Key then click "Discover"
    • You will be presented with all instances your access key has access to, simply click 'Start Monitoring' next to the desired instance
    • On the resulting screen you should not need to change any values, simply enter the credentials for your DB instance
    • Optionally, you can fill in labels or toggle any of the Additional Options, or click the 'Add Service' button at the bottom

    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 && \
