Percona Toolkit is a collection of advanced command-line tools used by Percona support staff to perform a variety of MySQL and system tasks that are too difficult or complex to perform manually.

These tools are ideal alternatives to private or "one-off" scripts because they are professionally developed, formally tested, and fully documented. They are also fully self-contained, so installation is quick and easy and no libraries are installed.

Percona Toolkit is developed and supported by Percona Inc. For more information and other free, open-source software developed by Percona, visit


To install all tools, run:

perl Makefile.PL
make test
make install

You probably need to be root to

make install
