SysBench is a modular, cross-platform and multi-threaded benchmark tool for evaluating OS parameters that are important for a system running a database under intensive load. The idea of this benchmark suite is to quickly get an impression about system performance without setting up complex database benchmarks or even without installing a database at all. Current features allow to test the following system parameters: * file I/O performance * scheduler performance * memory allocation and transfer speed * POSIX threads implementation performance * database server performance (OLTP benchmark) Primarily written for MySQL server benchmarking, SysBench will be further extended to support multiple database backends, distributed benchmarks and third-party plug-in modules.

    2016-04-14 - Robie Basak <> sysbench (0.4.12-1.1ubuntu1) xenial; urgency=medium * d/{rules,control}: drop DEB_AUTO_UPDATE and use dh-autoreconf instead to fix FTBFS (closes: #797260). This should stop needing packaging updates every time the archive verisons of autotools change. * d/p/libmysqlclient_r: link against libmysqlclient instead of libmysqlclient_r. The former supersedes the latter which no longer exists in MySQL 5.7.

    2016-04-05 - Robie Basak <> sysbench (0.4.12-1.1build1) xenial; urgency=medium * Rebuild against libmysqlclient20.
