Auto retire feature added to mackerel-agent for Windows

We’ve added a feature to automatically perform the retirement process from Mackerel when shutting down with a Windows server.

See the link below for configuration details.

In some cases, auto retirement may not execute normally such as when shutting down the server using the public cloud feature.

  • When the OS standard shutdown process is not executed
  • When network connection fails during the auto retirement process

Etc.

Before starting this operation, first confirm that the automatic retirement process is executed as expected in your environment.

The metric value calculation method of MySQL innodb Transactions for mackerel-plugin-mysql has been improved. This fix is applicable to MySQL 5.6.4 and later.
