  • Percona ubuntu packages and missing stuff


    I installed percona-server and percona-client on an ubuntu precise machine.
    I was trying to use innotop but I got this message:

    root@precise64:~# innotop
    The program 'innotop' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing:
    apt-get install mysql-client-5.5

    As I said I installed percona server and client:

    root@precise64:~# dpkg --get-selections | grep percona
    percona-server-client-5.5 install
    percona-server-common-5.5 install
    percona-server-server install
    percona-server-server-5.5 deinstall

    Showing package info I get this:

    root@precise64:~# apt-cache show percona-server-client-5.5
    Package: percona-server-client-5.5
    Source: percona-server-5.5
    Version: 1:5.5.32-rel31.0-549.precise
    Description: Percona Server database client binaries
    Percona Server is a fast, stable and true multi-user, multi-threaded SQL
    database server. SQL (Structured Query Language) is the most popular database
    query language in the world. The main goals of Percona Server are speed,
    robustness and ease of use.
    This package includes the client binaries and the additional tools
    innotop and mysqlreport.

    But I can't find innotop, what am I missing?

    Thank you for this report.

    Innotop is no longer shipped in deb or rpm packages, see this document for some details:

    This is actually an outdated info section of the package. I just filled this bug report to avoid that confusion in next releases:

    Right now, for Debian/Ubuntu, you can install the latest Innotop version from tarball (rpms only for RH/Centos/Fedora):
