With help from Major Hayden, mysqltuner’s original author, Sheeri K. Cabral of the Pythian Group has modified mysqltuner to be more comprehensive, to output information and to have a “spreadsheet” mode where the results of mysqltuner are outputted as a single column, so that you can easily compare subsequent runs of the modified mysqltuner — for example, running it monthly or weekly to see how performance is progressing (or degrading). There is also a truly offline mode that requires no database connectivity where files containing the output of SHOW GLOBAL STATUS and SHOW GLOBAL VARIABLES are used.
This ignite talk will go through how the the modified mysqltuner works including how easy it is to change what is checked and the thresholds.
Sheeri K. Cabral has a master’s degree in computer science specializing in databases from Brandeis University.
