NAME

       pt-align - Align output from other tools to columns.

SYNOPSIS

       Usage: pt-align [FILES]

       pt-align aligns output from other tools to columns.  If no FILES are specified, STDIN is
       read.

       If a tool prints the following output,

          DATABASE TABLE   ROWS
          foo      bar      100
          long_db_name table  1
          another  long_name 500

       then pt-align reprints the output as,

          DATABASE     TABLE     ROWS
          foo          bar        100
          long_db_name table        1
          another      long_name  500

RISKS

       Percona 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

DESCRIPTION

       pt-align reads lines and splits them into words.  It counts how many words each line has,
       and if there is one number that predominates, it assumes this is the number of words in
       each line.  Then it discards all lines that don't have that many words, and looks at the
       2nd line that does.  It assumes this is the first non-header line.  Based on whether each
       word looks numeric or not, it decides on column alignment.  Finally, it goes through and
       decides how wide each column should be, and then prints them out.

       This is useful for things like aligning the output of vmstat or iostat so it is easier to
       read.
