Useful tool for any MySQL DBA, Maatkit is a collection a utilities that ease painful MySQL manipulations (archive tables, keep a slave in sync, analyse slow queries…).

Or should I say “Maatkit was…”. In fact, it’s now known as “Percona Toolkit” and it’s available on Dotdeb for both Debian 6.0 “Squeeze” and 5.0 “Lenny”.

Enjoy.

    Is there available to make repo with Percona mysql server, but named not like percona-server-server or percona-server-client, but mysql-server and mysql-client.
    Because using percona repos cause uninstalling of phpmyadmin.

    @librarian : here are my plans
    1/ release Oracle MySQL 5.5 packages. Tests keep going.
    2/ meet the Percona guys in London at the end of the month to talk about their naming conventions and their packages’ dependencies
    3/ maybe release percona-server as alternative for percona-server.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I have been talking about naming problem with Oleg Tsarev.

    He advice me to open ticket about problem in their bug tracker or open tickets in debian projects. Unfortunately I didn’t have enough time to do this, but I will do this when I will have enough time to do this.
