"Set a name for the cluster. This parameter is required for deployments with MySQL Enterprise Monitor; it is otherwise unused."

This is not completely true. As Ndb_cluster_connection::get_system_name() can be used to retrieve the name.

See also https://dev.mysql.com/doc/ndbapi/en/ndb-ndb-cluster-connection-get-system-name.html

How to repeat:
Compare docs and API

Suggested fix:
Mention Ndb_cluster_connection::get_system_name() in the docs for system-name.
