This is probably a REALLY easy one... but I never use PERL. So I am not familiar with the usage.
There is a PERL script available at http://www.retards.org/projects/mysql/
How do I go about actually using it?
I have installed ActivePerl on my server... and I have a slow_log file from mysql that I would like to parse using this script.
My real question is how to actually instantiate the mysql_slow_log_parser script.
The webiste for the script says:
Usage: mysql_slow_log_parser logfile
so my question is this... do I download the script available at http://www.retards.org/projects/mysql/mysql_slow_log_parser
then save it as mysql_slow_log_parser.pl?
I tried that... then went to the command line and used: mysql_slow_log_parser slow_log
There is probably a very simple answer to my question... but it is urgent.
Thanks in advance.
