When installing the agent as non-root it can be difficult to find the mysql-monitor-agent script as the location is not mentioned in the manual. Sometimes users find the binary file in the /bin directory first as it has the same name. 

It is mentioned at the end of the installation script where the script file is located, but can be easily forgotten.

How to repeat:

Suggested fix:
There should be a not in this section "2.5.3. Starting/Stopping the Agent on Unix" to point users to the location in non-root installations.

/home/<user name>/mysql/enterprise/agent/etc/init.d/mysql-monitor-agent start
