What a surprise, this week-end I received I very nice email asking me some help on the plugins I wrote for dstat. I wrote them more then 2 years ago while listening to Linus Torvalds in Cambridge :) The request was to enable the read of the password and user from the my.cnf file instead of exporting them in environment variables. Here are the patch for the release 7.x (fedora) and 6.x (centos 5.3) The patch is only for one of the plugin, but it's easy to apply it to all of them.
ptxArchiver 0.1 is released, this tool uses mk-archiver from maatkit to archive tables into another table, a file or simply purged BUT it follows the foreign keys defined in a config file and archive then the linked table. Feel free to test it and report improvements, comments, encouragement :) Special thanks to zipkid for the help reviewing some code.
