The little-known Maatkit man pageSat, Jun 19, 2010 in Databases Open Source
The Maatkit toolkit for MySQL has a lot of functionality that’s common across the tools. It’s not a good idea to document this in each tool’s man page, of course. So there is an overall maatkit man page. It explains concepts such as configuration file syntax. This and all the other Maatkit man pages are online.
