Percona Monitoring and Management (PMM) is an open-source database monitoring, management, and observability solution for MySQL, PostgreSQL, and MongoDB.

It allows you to observe the health of your database systems, explore new patterns in their behavior, troubleshoot them and perform database management operations no matter where they are located on-prem or in the cloud.

This is the documentation for the latest release, PMM 2.42.0 (Release Notes).

Here’s how the home page looks on our free, live demo system.

PMM runs in the cloud, on-prem, or across hybrid platforms. It’s supported by our legendary expertise in open source databases, and by a vibrant developer and user community.

A minimal PMM set-up comprises one server and a client agent on every system you want to monitor.

Start here

  • An easy install script, which you download, make executable and run. The script installs Docker and runs PMM Server as a container.

  • The Quickstart install guide shows how to run PMM Server as a Docker container, and how to install PMM Client on Ubuntu or Red Hat Linux hosts.

  • Setting Up explains in detail how to set up PMM Server, clients, and how to add services.
