Mysqlslap - where is it hidden?

Hi there,

Was just reading about using mysqlslap for query / stress testing - but I can't seem to find it on my two dev machines!
Both are running mysql5 - but I just can't seem to locate it anywhere. The manual says to just type it in at the shell, but I get.

[nick@local ~] mysqlslap
bash: mysqlslap: command not found

Even doing a whereis or locate can't find this mysqlslap!

argh!

Hi,

This seems to be a packaging bug:

Right, so how can I get it?
Do I have to update to the latest mysqlserver?

Hi,

Updating might be a solution. I don't know if the latest you can get has the program in.
Seems that 5.1.23 has it as far as I can tell.
Of course, the alternative would be to build it yourself.

Cheers,

Thanks - made me look at version numbers more.
