Install and run mysqltuner

Before running the commands shown on this page, you should load the Bitnami stack environment by executing the installdir/use_APPNAME script (Linux and MacOS) or by clicking the shortcut in the Start Menu under “Start -> Bitnami APPNAME Stack -> Application console” (Windows). On OS X VMs, the installation directory is /opt/bitnami and OS X VM users can click the “Open Terminal” button to run commands. Learn more about the Bitnami stack environment and about OS X VMs.

NOTE: We are in the process of modifying the configuration for many Bitnami stacks. On account of these changes, the file paths and commands stated in this guide may change depending on whether your Bitnami stack uses MySQL or MariaDB. To identify which database server is used in your stack, run the command below:

 $ test -d installdir/mariadb && echo "MariaDB" || echo "MySQL"

The output of the command indicates which database server (MySQL or MariaDB) is used by the installation, and will allow you to identify which guides to follow in our documentation for common database-related operations.

To install mysqtuner, download the mysqltuner.pl script. For example, you can download it with wget:

$ wget https://raw.github.com/rackerhacker/MySQLTuner-perl/master/mysqltuner.pl

To monitor a MySQL server installed by a Bitnami stack, pass the connection values through the command line, as shown below. Note that you will need Perl installed on the system.

$ perl mysqltuner.pl --socket installdir/mysql/tmp/mysql.sock
