       mysqlslap - load emulation client

SYNOPSIS         top

       mysqlslap [options]

DESCRIPTION         top

       mysqlslap is a diagnostic program designed to emulate client load for
       a MariaDB server and to report the timing of each stage. It works as
       if multiple clients are accessing the server.

       Invoke mysqlslap like this:

           shell> mysqlslap [options]

       Some options such as --create or --query enable you to specify a
       string containing an SQL statement or a file containing statements.
       If you specify a file, by default it must contain one statement per
       line. (That is, the implicit statement delimiter is the newline
       character.) Use the --delimiter option to specify a different
       delimiter, which enables you to specify statements that span multiple
       lines or place multiple statements on a single line. You cannot
       include comments in a file; mysqlslap does not understand them.

       mysqlslap runs in three stages:

        1. Create schema, table, and optionally any stored programs or data
           you want to using for the test. This stage uses a single client
           connection.

        2. Run the load test. This stage can use many client connections.

        3. Clean up (disconnect, drop table if specified). This stage uses a
           single client connection.

       Examples:

       Supply your own create and query SQL statements, with 50 clients
       querying and 200 selects for each:

           mysqlslap --delimiter=";" \
             --create="CREATE TABLE a (b int);INSERT INTO a VALUES (23)" \
             --query="SELECT * FROM a" --concurrency=50 --iterations=200

       Let mysqlslap build the query SQL statement with a table of two INT
       columns and three VARCHAR columns. Use five clients querying 20 times
       each. Do not create the table or insert the data (that is, use the
       previous test´s schema and data):

           mysqlslap --concurrency=5 --iterations=20 \
             --number-int-cols=2 --number-char-cols=3 \
             --auto-generate-sql

       Tell the program to load the create, insert, and query SQL statements
       from the specified files, where the create.sql file has multiple
       table creation statements delimited by ´;´ and multiple insert
       statements delimited by ´;´. The --query file will have multiple
       queries delimited by ´;´. Run all the load statements, then run all
       the queries in the query file with five clients (five times each):

           mysqlslap --concurrency=5 \
             --iterations=5 --query=query.sql --create=create.sql \
             --delimiter=";"

       mysqlslap supports the following options, which can be specified on
       the command line or in the [mysqlslap] and [client] option file
       groups.  mysqlslap also supports the options for processing option
       files.

       ·   --help, -?

           Display a help message and exit.

       ·   --auto-generate-sql, -a

           Generate SQL statements automatically when they are not supplied
           in files or via command options.

       ·   --auto-generate-sql-add-autoincrement

           Add an AUTO_INCREMENT column to automatically generated tables.

       ·   --auto-generate-sql-execute-number=N

           Specify how many queries to generate automatically.

       ·   --auto-generate-sql-guid-primary

           Add a GUID-based primary key to automatically generated tables.

       ·   --auto-generate-sql-load-type=type

           Specify the test load type. The allowable values are read (scan
           tables), write (insert into tables), key (read primary keys),
           update (update primary keys), or mixed (half inserts, half
           scanning selects). The default is mixed.

       ·   --auto-generate-sql-secondary-indexes=N

           Specify how many secondary indexes to add to automatically
           generated tables. By default, none are added.

       ·   --auto-generate-sql-unique-query-number=N

           How many different queries to generate for automatic tests. For
           example, if you run a key test that performs 1000 selects, you
           can use this option with a value of 1000 to run 1000 unique
           queries, or with a value of 50 to perform 50 different selects.
           The default is 10.

       ·   --auto-generate-sql-unique-write-number=N

           How many different queries to generate for
           --auto-generate-sql-write-number. The default is 10.

       ·   --auto-generate-sql-write-number=N

           100.

       ·   --commit=N

           How many statements to execute before committing. The default is
           0 (no commits are done).

       ·   --compress, -C

           Compress all information sent between the client and the server
           if both support compression.

       ·   --concurrency=N, -c N

           The number of clients to simulate when issuing the SELECT
           statement.

       ·   --create=value

           The schema in which to run the tests.

       ·   --csv[=file_name]

           Generate output in comma-separated values format. The output goes
           to the named file, or to the standard output if no file is given.

       ·   --debug[=debug_options], -# [debug_options]

           Write a debugging log. A typical debug_options string is
           ´d:t:o,file_name´. The default is ´d:t:o,/tmp/mysqlslap.trace´.

       ·   --debug-check

           Print some debugging information when the program exits.

       ·   --debug-info, -T

           Print debugging information and memory and CPU usage statistics
           when the program exits.

       ·   --default-auth=name

           Default authentication client-side plugin to use.

       ·   --defaults-extra-file=filename

           Set filename as the file to read default options from after the
           global defaults files has been read.  Must be given as first
           option.

       ·   --defaults-file=filename

           Set filename as the file to read default options from, override
           global defaults files.  Must be given as first option.

       ·   --delimiter=str, -F str

           The delimiter to use in SQL statements supplied in files or via
           command options.

       ·   --detach=N

           Detach (close and reopen) each connection after each N
           statements. The default is 0 (connections are not detached).

       ·   --engine=engine_name, -e engine_name

           Comma separated list of storage engines to use for creating the
           table. The test is run for each engine. You can also specify an
           option for an engine after a colon, for example
           memory:max_row=2300.

       ·   --host=host_name, -h host_name

           Connect to the MariaDB server on the given host.

       ·   --init-command=str

           SQL Command to execute when connecting to MariaDB server. Will
           automatically be re-executed when reconnecting.

       ·   --iterations=N, -i N

           The number of times to run the tests.

       ·   --no-defaults

           Do not read default options from any option file. This must be
           given as the first argument.

       ·   --no-drop

           Do not drop any schema created during the test after the test is
           complete.

       ·   --number-char-cols=N, -x N

           The number of VARCHAR columns to use if --auto-generate-sql is
           specified.

       ·   --number-int-cols=N, -y N

           The number of INT columns to use if --auto-generate-sql is
           specified.

       ·   --number-of-queries=N

           Limit each client to approximately this many queries. Query
           counting takes into account the statement delimiter. For example,
           if you invoke mysqlslap as follows, the ; delimiter is recognized
           so that each instance of the query string counts as two queries.
           As a result, 5 rows (not 10) are inserted.

               shell> mysqlslap --delimiter=";" --number-of-queries=10
                        --query="use test;insert into t values(null)"

       ·   --only-print

           Do not connect to databases.  mysqlslap only prints what it would
           have done.

       ·   --password[=password], -p[password]

           The password to use when connecting to the server. If you use the
           short option form (-p), you cannot have a space between the
           option and the password. If you omit the password value following
           the --password or -p option on the command line, mysqlslap
           prompts for one.

           Specifying a password on the command line should be considered
           insecure. You can use an option file to avoid giving the password
           on the command line.

       ·   --pipe, -W

           On Windows, connect to the server via a named pipe. This option
           applies only if the server supports named-pipe connections.

       ·   --plugin-dir=dir_name

           Directory for client-side plugins.

       ·   --port=port_num, -P port_num

           The TCP/IP port number to use for the connection.

       ·   --post-query=value

           The file or string containing the statement to execute after the
           tests have completed. This execution is not counted for timing
           purposes.

       ·   --post-system=str

           The string to execute via system() after the tests have
           completed. This execution is not counted for timing purposes.

       ·   --pre-query=value

           The file or string containing the statement to execute before
           running the tests. This execution is not counted for timing
           purposes.

       ·   --pre-system=str

           The string to execute via system() before running the tests. This
           execution is not counted for timing purposes.

       ·   --print-defaults

           Print the program argument list and exit.  This must be given as
           the first argument.

       ·   --protocol={TCP|SOCKET|PIPE|MEMORY}

           The connection protocol to use for connecting to the server. It
           is useful when the other connection parameters normally would
           cause a protocol to be used other than the one you want.

       ·   --query=value, -q value

           The file or string containing the SELECT statement to use for
           retrieving data.

       ·   --shared-memory-base-name=name

           On Windows, the shared-memory name to use, for connections made
           via shared memory to a local server. This option applies only if
           the server supports shared-memory connections.

       ·   --silent, -s

           Silent mode. No output.

       ·   --socket=path, -S path

           For connections to localhost, the Unix socket file to use, or, on
           Windows, the name of the named pipe to use.

       ·   --ssl

           Enable SSL for connection (automatically enabled with other
           flags). Disable with --skip-ssl.

       ·   --ssl-ca=name

           CA file in PEM format (check OpenSSL docs, implies --ssl).

       ·   --ssl-capath=name

           CA directory (check OpenSSL docs, implies --ssl).

       ·   --ssl-cert=name

           X509 cert in PEM format (check OpenSSL docs, implies --ssl).

       ·   --ssl-cipher=name

           SSL cipher to use (check OpenSSL docs, implies --ssl).

       ·   --ssl-key=name

           X509 key in PEM format (check OpenSSL docs, implies --ssl).

       ·   --ssl-crl=name

           Certificate revocation list (check OpenSSL docs, implies --ssl).

       ·   --ssl-crlpath=name

           Certificate revocation list path (check OpenSSL docs, implies
           --ssl).

       ·   --ssl-verify-server-cert

           Verify server's "Common Name" in its cert against hostname used
           when connecting. This option is disabled by default.

       ·   --user=user_name, -u user_name

           The MariaDB user name to use when connecting to the server.

       ·   --verbose, -v

           Verbose mode. Print more information about what the program does.
           This option can be used multiple times to increase the amount of
           information.

       ·   --version, -V

           Display version information and exit.
