Configuration

In order to enable in depth metric monitoring, you need to inform the Agent about the credentials to access monitoring information. You can configure it in the agent <agent_install_dir>/etc/instana/configuration.yaml:

com.instana.plugin.mariadb:
  user: ''
  password: ''

Required DB Permissions

For the sensor to be able to collect performance information about the DBMS, read-only access to the schemaperformance_schema is required. This is an example how to create an account with the required rights: GRANT SELECT ON performance_schema.* TO '<instana_mon_user>'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'instana_mon_pwd';
