Verify the pxc_scheduler_handler installation

If you have installed ProxySQL 2.3.2-2.1 or later, verify the Percona_Scheduler_Admin installation with the following command:

$ percona-scheduler-admin --debug

Running this command without the pxc_scheduler_handler configuration file generates an error.

Error message
ERROR : The --config-file option is required but is missing from the command.

Run Docker

To run ProxySQL2 in Docker, download the latest image at percona/proxysql2.
