Configure monitoring.


Updates the monitoring configuration for the cluster.

This will restart the memsql_exporter process or stop it if --stop-exporter is specified.

This command should be run on the cluster you are monitoring (Source cluster).

SingleStore DB 7.1.8 is the minimum version required to run 'configure-monitoring'.

  • --exporter-password is a required flag that specifies the password of the SingleStore DB root user on the Source cluster. You can optionally use this flag in conjunction with the --exporter-user flag to specify a SingleStore DB user on Source cluster that is different from the root user and the user’s password. Note that the EXPORTER_PASSWORD environment variable is a safer alternative option for setting the password.

  • Wrap the password string in single quotes (') to avoid having the shell try to interpret any special characters included in the string.

  • This command is interactive unless you use either --yes or --json flag to override interactive behavior.
