Why PMM User need Super privileges?

I’ve recently installed pm-server 2.12. But it requires SUPER privilege to pmm mysql user in Mysql Clients Server. This is not safe to grant SUPER privilege for à monitoring account.

If PMM “not modified data” in database client, why is nessesary to grant this super privilege ?

I saw that it’s nessesary to permits one more connection to those users (max_connecitions server variable) .

What are the others functionality not work if i revoke this privilege?.

Thanks for your help
best regards.
