MySQL Toolkit version 946 released

This release of MySQL Toolkit adds a new tool, fixes some minor bugs, and adds new functionality to one of the helper scripts.

New tool: MySQL Parallel Dump

I wrote an introduction to MySQL Parallel Dump yesterday. It’s a much smarter way to dump your data if you have a lot of it, and it’s actually a very usable lightweight multi-threaded backup tool (it can do most dump-oriented backup jobs without a wrapper script, in my opinion).


Changelog for mysql-parallel-dump:

2007-10-01: version 0.9.5

   * Initial release.

Changelog for mysql-table-checksum:

2007-10-01: version 1.1.16

   * Made mysql-checksum-filter able to compare tables in different databases.

Changelog for mysql-table-sync:

2007-10-01: version 0.9.7

   * The special command-line syntax didn't allow a bare hostname.
   * Added an informative printout of what is being synced.
