The Percona ToolKit needs a cookbook. The documentation is reference only, very thin and total void of useful examples. You’re beginning to frustrate the masses.
Here is what’s happening. My MySQL server crashes or stalls ever few months. I searched the Goog and find PT-Stalk :
“watches for a trigger condition to become true, and then collects data to help in diagnosing problems. It is designed to run as a daemon with root privileges, so that you can diagnose intermittent problems that you cannot observe directly. You can also use it to execute a custom command, or to gather the data on demand without waiting for the trigger to happen.”
I attend your webinar. I even attend the Percona Live conference in San Francisco to talke with the developer in person and still I get little more then:
pt-stalk [OPTIONS] [-- MYSQL OPTIONS]
Anyone else feel the same?
I’m going to take a deep dive into the Percona ToolKit code and try to bring you some working examples (Cut and Paste). I’m going to start with PT-STALK because it fills a need. I’ll pick the next in the line of useful tools that need more documentation.
If you would like be to document a Percona tool you need, leave me a comment.
