Mysql load testing and performance tuning tools

Hi, can any one please help with an example on how to use "mysql-stress-test.pl". I  tried to follow the help but it seems that I am missing something. I got the following error:
 mysqltest: Could not open ' {--stress-basedir}/t/select' for reading, error : 2

here is the command that I am using:

./mysql-stress-test.pl --server-port 3306 --server-user username --server-password pwd --server-database=mydb  --threads=1000  --verbose --stress-basedir=/myhomdir/test  --stress-suite-basedir=/myhome/result --stress-datadir=/myhomedir/  --server-logs-dir=/myhomedir/ --cleanup  --stress-tests-file=/myhomedir/result/myfile-tests.txt

Open in new window


myfile-tests.txt => contains :
select * from mytab;

Open in new window


any recommendation for some other tools for load testing and keep track of the performance for cpu, memory, execution time and so on...

thanks

About  mysqltest: Could not open ' {--stress-basedir}/t/select' for reading, error : 2 --

Check "perror 2" and as it will convey the location of basedir cannot be found and hence cannot open.
Is it permission issue or is it actually not there?

I see in your command it says: "stress-basedir=/myhomdir/test" as base dir... So do you have file at: /myhomdir/test/t/select ?

Note it is "hom" and not "home"!!

Other options:

Check out following tools:
sysbench: This is multi threaded benchmarking tool which generates oltp and other traffic which is predesigned.
mysqlslap: You can choose queries to test for and run a stress test with multiple threads with other options.
