I’m glad to announce the third Percona Playback release – another alpha release of a new software package designed to replay database server load. The first two versions were released in April, just in time for my talk at the Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo: Replaying Database Load with Percona Playback.
This is still very much under development, so there’s likely going to be bugs. Please feel free to report bugs here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/percona-playback
Percona Playback is designed to replay database load captured either in a MySQL slow query log or a tcpdump capture of the MySQL protocol exchange between client and server.
It can replay the load either as fast as possible or in accurate mode, where it tries to replay load over the same wall time as the capture.
Current Notable Limitations:
We’ve tested building on CentOS/RHEL 6, Ubuntu 10.04LTS (lucid), Ubuntu 12.04 (precise) and Debian 6.
You can build using the standard: ./configure && make && make install
Run the test suite: make check
We are planning binary packages for the next development milestone.
