We’re new to the PMM tool and are quite confused. There is a lot of terms that are we are seeing that don’t seem to make sense.
This is what we are dealing with at the moment on our first client installation.
- Is the Docker server the Server that is listed below? What does the server initiate connection instead of the client with the pmm-client installed
- Is the client host supposed to have an IP address of 172.17.0.1 in the output of ‘ip addr’?
- Connection: Client <-- Server
SERVICE TYPE NAME REMOTE ENDPOINT STATUS HTTPS/TLS PASSWORD
linux:metrics servername 172.17.0.1–>realIPaddress:42000 DOWN YES YES
mysql:metrics servername 172.17.0.1–>realIPaddress:42002 DOWN YES YES
