sysbench 0.5 for CentOS 6

on

During my work I sometimes need to perform some benchmarks. I usually use sysbench. The version provided in EPEL for CentOS is old and I wanted to benefit from all the new features of the latest version from launchpad maintained by my colleague Alexey. But as I don’t want to install bzr and devel packages and then recompile each time, I decided to make an rpm. I think some people could find it useful so I share it. Enjoy !

[update] I made a new package that also includes the lua files for db tests.

[update] New package from last bzr trunk where bug related to –tx-rate has been fixed (requested by my colleague Jay for his Percona Live New York tutorial about XtraDB Cluster

  1. Hello,

    Installation of the above fails on CentOS6:

    Setting up Install Process
    Examining sysbench-0.5-2.el6_.x86_64.rpm: sysbench-0.5-2.el6.x86_64
    Marking sysbench-0.5-2.el6_.x86_64.rpm as an update to sysbench-0.4.12-5.el6.x86_64
    Resolving Dependencies
    –> Running transaction check
    —> Package sysbench.x86_64 0:0.4.12-5.el6 will be updated
    —> Package sysbench.x86_64 0:0.5-2.el6 will be an update
    –> Processing Dependency: libmysqlclient.so.18()(64bit) for package: sysbench-0.5-2.el6.x86_64
    –> Finished Dependency Resolution
    Error: Package: sysbench-0.5-2.el6.x86_64 (/sysbench-0.5-2.el6_.x86_64)
    Requires: libmysqlclient.so.18()(64bit)
    You could try using –skip-broken to work around the problem

    Care to provide the source RPM?

    1. [root@percona-pxc55-1 ~]# rpm -ivh sysbench-0.5-3.el6_.x86_64.rpm
      error: Failed dependencies:
      libmysqlclient.so.18()(64bit) is needed by sysbench-0.5-3.el6.x86_64
      [root@percona-pxc55-1 ~]#

      While installing if you get above error, then install shared package.

      [root@percona-pxc55-1 ~]# rpm -ivh Percona-XtraDB-Cluster-shared-55-5.5.37-25.10.756.el6.x86_64.rpm
