In order to monitor a MySQL server, CloudTest must be able to establish a TCP/IP connection to the server. If you are not sure how to enable this, consult the MySQL reference manual.

If a firewall prevents TCP/IP access, see the topic Monitoring a Server Behind a Firewall and additional Instructions for Monitoring a MySQL Server behind a Firewall below.

In addition, the MySQL account used by CloudTest must have the PROCESS privilege (this can be done using the GRANT statement).
