pt-sift downloads other tools that it might need, such as pt-diskstats, and then makes a list of the unique timestamp prefixes of all the files in the directory, as written by the pt-stalk tool. If the user specified a timestamp on the command line, then it begins with that sample of data; otherwise it begins by showing a list of the timestamps and prompting for a selection. Thereafter, it displays a summary of the selected sample, and the user can navigate and inspect with keystrokes. The keystroke commands you can use are as follows:
Sets the action to start the pt-diskstats tool on the samples disk performance statistics.
Sets the action to view the first INNODB STATUS sample in less.
Displays the first 4 samples of SHOW STATUS counters side by side with the pt-mext tool.
Summarizes the first sample of netstat data in two ways: by originating host, and by connection state.
Select the next timestamp as the active sample.
Select the previous timestamp as the active sample.
Quit the program.
Sets the action for each sample to the default, which is to view a summary of the sample.
o Sets the action to just list the files in the sample. o *
Sets the action to view all of the samples files in the less program.
This tool does not use any environment variables.
This tool requires Bash v3 and the following programs: pt-diskstats, pt-pmp, pt-mext, and pt-align. If these programs are not in your PATH, they will be fetched from the Internet if curl is available.
