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-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.
Show help and exit.
short form: -r
Subtract each column from the previous column.
