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 , .
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 !
