NAME

SYNOPSIS

Usage

pt-mext [OPTIONS] -- COMMAND

pt-mext columnizes repeated output from a program like mysqladmin extended.

Get output from mysqladmin:

pt-mext -r -- mysqladmin ext -i10 -c3

RISKS

Percona Toolkit is mature, proven in the real world, and well tested, but all database tools can pose a risk to the system and the database server. Before using this tool, please:

  • Read the tool’s documentation
  • Review the tool’s known “BUGS”
  • Test the tool on a non-production server
  • Backup your production server and verify the backups

DESCRIPTION

pt-mext executes the COMMAND you specify, and reads through the result one line at a time. It places each line into a temporary file. When it finds a blank line, it assumes that a new sample of SHOW GLOBAL STATUS is starting, and it creates a new temporary file. At the end of this process, it has a number of temporary files. It joins the temporary files together side-by-side and prints the result. If --relative option is given, it first subtracts each sample from the one after it before printing results.

OPTIONS

--help

Show help and exit.

--relative

short form: -r

Subtract each column from the previous column.

--version

Show version and exit.

ENVIRONMENT

This tool does not use any environment variables.

SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

This tool requires the Bourne shell (/bin/sh) and the seq program.
