Calling all MySQL DBAs: How do you use Percona Toolkit?

Percona Toolkit is one of our most mature open source applications. Derived from Maatkit and Aspersa, Percona Toolkit has evolved significantly over the years. The software now contains 32 tools, over 4,000 tests, and has been downloaded over 250,000 times. Anyone who manages a database – from DBAs to system administrators to even software developers – benefits from Percona Toolkit’s ability to perform a variety of MySQL server and system tasks that are too difficult or complex to perform manually.

We continue to make Percona Toolkit better each month. Over the last 9 months alone Percona has had 6 releases and resolved nearly 50 issues.

While Percona team members in Support, Consulting, and Managed Services are big drivers of identifying bugs and new features (driven mostly by Percona customer needs), the community of Percona Toolkit users plays a significant role in making the open source software what it is today.

We’d like to learn how we can make Percona Toolkit even better for your needs. Please take a brief survey so we can learn how you actually use the software. As a thank you for taking the survey, we are randomly giving away five $50 Amazon.com gift cards to participants. It’s a small token but one that we hope you’ll appreciate.

Recent additions to Percona Toolkit have included better Percona XtraDB Cluster support as well as multiple fixes and improvements to pt-online-schema-change, pt-kill, pt-query-digest, pt-stalk, and preparation for the MySQL 5.7 GA. Help us continue to improve Percona Toolkit by taking part in our survey. If you use Percona Toolkit and are attending Percona Live next month, please keep a look out for me. I’d like to hear about your experiences.

Aspersa tools bit.ly download shortcuts

I use Aspersa tools a lot and I find myself going to the website just to download one of the tools all the time. I love I can download maatkit with a simple wget maatkit.org/get/tool command so I made bit.ly shortcuts for all of the current aspersa tools. Here’s the full list with my favorite on the top and least favorite (but none the less very useful) on the bottom:

So now it’s as simple as wget bit.ly/aspersa-tool. I hope you will find these useful too.

Update: I made an error with align tool which now links to the root directory of a trunk. I don’t think this is a big deal as I use align least often, but what I did to fix that is created even shorter shortcuts for all the tools, so you can also use wget bit.ly/a-tool
