Two MySQL tuner scripts
MySQLTuner (Perl) and MySQL Performance Tuning Primer (Shell) are two scripts that can help diagnose MySQL database performance issues, and provide recommendations on how to solve them. While both scripts output similar information, the diagnosis can be slightly different with each script, so I like to use both. Below are directions on how to use them, as well as a few screenshots.
# Download MySQLTuner and MySQL Performance Tuning Primer to ~/scripts. # To avoid having to invoke Perl/SH each time, make both files executable. chmod +x ~/scripts/mysqltuner.pl chmod +x ~/scripts/tuning-primer.sh # After that, give them a go! ~/scripts/mysqltuner.pl ~/scripts/tuning-primer.sh
