pt-sift - Browses files created by pt-stalk.
Usage: pt-sift FILE|PREFIX|DIRECTORY pt-sift browses files created by pt-stalk. If no options are given, the tool browses all pt-stalk files in "/var/lib/pt-stalk" if that directory exists, else the current working directory is used. If a FILE is given, the tool browses files with the same prefix in the given file's directory. If a PREFIX is given, the tool browses files in "/var/lib/pt-stalk" (or the current working directory) with the same prefix. If a DIRECTORY is given, the tool browses all pt-stalk files in it.
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
pt-sift downloads other tools that it might need, such as pt-diskstats, and then makes a list of the unique timestamp prefixes of all the files in the directory, as written by the pt-stalk tool. If the user specified a timestamp on the command line, then it begins with that sample of data; otherwise it begins by showing a list of the timestamps and prompting for a selection. Thereafter, it displays a summary of the selected sample, and the user can navigate and inspect with keystrokes. The keystroke commands you can use are as follows: · d Sets the action to start the pt-diskstats tool on the sample's disk performance statistics. · i Sets the action to view the first INNODB STATUS sample in less. · m Displays the first 4 samples of SHOW STATUS counters side by side with the pt-mext tool. · n Summarizes the first sample of netstat data in two ways: by originating host, and by connection state. · j Select the next timestamp as the active sample. · k Select the previous timestamp as the active sample. · q Quit the program. · 1 Sets the action for each sample to the default, which is to view a summary of the sample. · Sets the action to just list the files in the sample. · * Sets the action to view all of the sample's files in the less program.
--help Show help and exit. --version Show version and exit.
This tool does not use any environment variables.
This tool requires Bash v3 and the following programs: pt-diskstats, pt-pmp, pt-mext, and pt-align. If these programs are not in your PATH, they will be fetched from the Internet if curl is available.
