Percona Monitoring and Management (PMM) update server address

Leave a Comment


Your PMM server address has changed (IP, hostname or port). The pmm-agent running on the monitored servers can't connect anymore. This guide assumes that you are on a Linux server (Ubuntu).


This can be fixed by updating the configuration file (pmm-agent.yaml) and restarting pmm-agent.
Here are the steps:

1. Locate the config file

Run service pmm-agent status to find the location of your pmm installation:
$ service pmm-agent status
● pmm-agent.service - pmm-agent
     Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/pmm-agent.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)
     Active: active (running) since Thu 2022-01-27 09:31:21 CST; 3s ago
   Main PID: 2357146 (pmm-agent)
      Tasks: 37 (limit: 38472)
     Memory: 27.1M
     CGroup: /system.slice/pmm-agent.service
             ├─2357146 /usr/sbin/pmm-agent --config-file=/usr/local/percona/pmm2/config/pmm-agent.yaml
We can see that the --config-file path is

2. Update the config file

Open pmm-agent.yaml in a text editor and update the server details.
$  nano /usr/local/percona/pmm2/config/pmm-agent.yaml
Update the address/username/password in the server block.
    address: 123.456.123.456:443
    username: admin
    password: 123456
    insecure-tls: true
Save the file (CTRL+O) and exit (CTRL+X)

3. Restart pmm-agent agent

Run service pmm-agent restart.
The pmm-agent should now be connected to your updated pmm-server address.
