NAME

       pt-mext - Look at many samples of MySQL "SHOW GLOBAL STATUS" side-by-side.

SYNOPSIS

       Usage: pt-mext [OPTIONS] -- COMMAND

       pt-mext columnizes repeated output from a program like mysqladmin extended.

       Get output from "mysqladmin":

          pt-mext -r -- mysqladmin ext -i10 -c3

       Get output from a file:

          pt-mext -r -- cat mysqladmin-output.txt

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-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.

OPTIONS

       --help
           Show help and exit.

       --relative
           short form: -r

           Subtract each column from the previous column.

       --version
           Show version and exit.

ENVIRONMENT

       This tool does not use any environment variables.

SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

       This tool requires the Bourne shell (/bin/sh) and the seq program.
