Sysbench for arm and MySQL 8.0

For my presentation for the next FOSDEM MySQL Devroom, I needed to create some load.

As usual, for this task, what better than sysbench ?

The “problem” was that my system was already setup and I used OL7 on the always free Ampere compute instance on OCI.

As you may know, this is an ARM architecture (aarch64) and there was not sysbench rpm package available for this OS and architecture.

I also wanted to have sysbench compiled and linked with MySQL 8.0 libraries [1], [2].

And this is why I built this package that requires also luajit-2.10.

Here are the packages in case you are interested.

Enjoy MySQL and enjoy Sysbench !
