Surprisingly, obtaining the version of the MySQL Enterprise Monitor from the command line is not as obvious as one woud think. Generally, with most MySQL programs, you can use the –version option passed to the program to obtain this information (such as you can with the mysqld, the MEM agent, and MySQL proxy).
I realize this is not too common of a problem, but hopefully this will help someone out there.
There is a version.sh (Linux) and version.bat (Windows) included in /opt/mysql/enterprise/monitor/apache-tomcat/bin, which will output everything but the MEM version:
root@chris-linux:/opt/mysql/enterprise/monitor/apache-tomcat/bin# ./version.sh Using CATALINA_BASE: /opt/mysql/enterprise/monitor/apache-tomcat Using CATALINA_HOME: /opt/mysql/enterprise/monitor/apache-tomcat Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: /opt/mysql/enterprise/monitor/apache-tomcat/temp Using JRE_HOME: /opt/mysql/enterprise/monitor/java Server version: Apache Tomcat/6.0.14 Server built: Jul 20 2007 04:17:30 Server number: 188.8.131.52 OS Name: Linux OS Version: 2.6.24-25-generic Architecture: amd64 JVM Version: 1.6.0_13-b03 JVM Vendor: Sun Microsystems Inc.
I’ve filed a feature request to hopefully get this added to version.sh and version.bat, or perhaps to simply get a version.txt file included.
But in the meantime, should you want/need this functionality, you can obtain it using any of the following commands:
more /opt/mysql/enterprise/monitor/configuration_report.txt | grep Version more /opt/mysql/enterprise/monitor/configuration_report.txt | grep -i version cat /opt/mysql/enterprise/monitor/configuration_report.txt | grep Version cat /opt/mysql/enterprise/monitor/configuration_report.txt | grep -i version
All of the above would output something similar to the following:
MySQL Enterprise Monitor (Version 184.108.40.2066 : build_1096)
Additionally, there’s a somewhat more complex alternative, which strictly shows the version number is this (and obtains it from the Dashboard as opposed to a file which you may or may not (or not want others to) have permissions to view it):
WGET="wget -O FID http://localhost:18080" $WGET 2>&1 > FID.log 2>&1 grep '< td id="footerInfo">' FID | cut -f2 -d'>' | cut -f1 -d'<' | cut -c1-10
After the 3rd command, you'll get the following output:
