Percona toolkit 2.2.8

Percona toolkit 2.2.8 is now available on Dotdeb for both Debian 7 “Wheezy” and Debian 6 “Squeeze”. This release fixes bugs and also brings new things :

  • pt-agent has been replaced by percona-agent. More information on percona-agent can be found in the Introducing the 3-Minute MySQL Monitor blog post.
  • pt-slave-restart now supports MySQL 5.6 global transaction IDs.
  • pt-table-checksum now has new –plugin option which is similar to pt-online-schema-change –plugin

As usual, before upgrading, please read the list of changes for Percona toolkit 2.2.8 and the announcement by Hrvoje Matijakovic.
