The following section is included to inform users about the potential risks, whether known or unknown, of using this tool. The two main categories of risks are those created by the nature of the tool (e.g. read-only tools vs. read-write tools) and those created by bugs.
pt-mext is a read-only tool. It should be very low-risk.
At the time of this release, we know of no bugs that could cause serious harm to users.
The authoritative source for updated information is always the online issue tracking system. Issues that affect this tool will be marked as such. You can see a list of such issues at the following URL: http://www.percona.com/bugs/pt-mext.
See also “BUGS” for more information on filing bugs and getting help.
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 the “-r” option is given, it first subtracts each sample from the one after it before printing results.
|-r||Relative: subtract each column from the previous column.|
This tool does not use any environment variables.
This tool requires the Bourne shell (/bin/sh) and the seq program.
