PMM Agent in PXC Docker Image

I’ve used percona/percona-xtradb-cluster from Docker Hub with great success so far. I’m evaluating our migration path from vanilla MySQL 5.7 to a HA solution built on PXC8.0 using these images.

I attended Percona Live this year and realised that PMM is a MUST-mandatory-MUST for our cluster when it hits production. So I started working out how to make it happen. I’ll have to integrate the PMM-agent in a custom image.

But, I think it may make sense to have the PMM-agent with a cluster node based on the official PXC image. Therefore I was wondering if it wouldn’t make sense to include the PMM agent in the PXC Docker image.

I considered creating a issue on the github repo, but decided to get a conversation going about it first.

We focus our development efforts with containers on Percona XtraDB Cluster Operator for Kubernetes, and it is unlikely we will update our docker images to add extra functionality.
Our Kubernetes Operator comes with PMM-agent for monitoring.

Thank you @vadimtk.

I’m picking up what your putting down.


I had a feeling I should think in the direction of a Kubernetes rollout. I was just nervous about the learning curve.
