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.

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
* d/p/libmysqlclient_r: link against libmysqlclient instead of
libmysqlclient_r. The former supersedes the latter which no longer
exists in MySQL 5.7.
