Getting Started After Deploying Percona Monitoring

After you purchase an order, you'll receive a notification email with the server ready for use. This will include the VPS IP address, login, and password. Our company clients manage their equipment through the server control panel and APIInvapi.

You can find the authorization data in either the Info >> Tags tab of the server control panel or in the sent email:

  • Link to access the Percona Monitoring web interface: in the webpanel tag;
  • Login: admin;
  • Password: admin.

After successful authorization in the Percona Monitoring panel, it is highly recommended to change the administrator password for system security. The password change menu will appear automatically:

After changing the password, you'll be redirected to the Percona Monitoring web interface home screen:

The top panel allows you to configure time intervals, environment, and other display parameters. The "Overview" section displays key metrics:

  • Types and number of monitored databases;
  • Number of database instances and nodes;
  • CPU, RAM, and virtual memory usage;
  • Node and database uptime;
  • Disk space usage and read/write activity;
  • Number of database connections and queries per second;
  • Update status and issues.

The graphs at the bottom display CPU anomalies and servers with high CPU load. The left sidebar allows you to switch between different monitoring sections.


Detailed information on basic Percona Monitoring settings can be found in the developer documentation.
