Traffic Handling For Database Monitoring
MONyog uses port 5555 for Monitoring the mariadb database which creates a connection on port 3306 on database server. Does this connection creates more load on the 3306 port??? and is there any way to change the port and get the connection established at some other port on which mysqld is not running??
Answer Answered by Sibin AS in this comment.
A port is a way to identify a specific process to which a message is to be forwarded when it arrives at a server. Also there can be only one service (running service) that can listen on a particular port.
As your mariaDB server is running on port 3306, any MySQL Client would establish the connection via the port 3306.
So there is actually no load involved on a port while initiating a connection to the server.
