RISKSPercona Toolkit is mature, proven in the real world, and well tested, but all database tools can pose a risk to the system and the database server. Before using this tool, please:
- Read the tool's documentation
- Review the tool's known ``BUGS''
- Test the tool on a non-production server
- Backup your production server and verify the backups
DESCRIPTIONpt-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 ``--relative'' option is given, it first subtracts each sample from the one after it before printing results.
- Show help and exit.
short form: -r
Subtract each column from the previous column.
- Show version and exit.
ENVIRONMENTThis tool does not use any environment variables.
SYSTEM REQUIREMENTSThis tool requires the Bourne shell (/bin/sh) and the seq program.
