MySQL Benchmarking 1

From time to time every MySQL DBA needs to benchmark queries. Fortunately there are many benchmarking tools available. In this and future posts I will walk you through using various MySQL benchmarking tools.

After downloading Sysbench, uncompress and extract files from the archive:
gunzip sysbench-0.4.7.tar.gz
tar -xvf sysbench-0.4.7.tar

Then navigate to the sysbench-0.4.7 directory and run
to configure the package.
[root@db32:/home/fmashraqi/install/bench/sysbench-0.4.7] ./configure
checking build system type... sparc-sun-solaris2.10
checking host system type... sparc-sun-solaris2.10
checking target system type... sparc-sun-solaris2.10
checking for a BSD-compatible install... config/install-sh -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for gawk... no
checking for mawk... no
checking for nawk... nawk
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... no
checking whether to compile with MySQL support... (cached) yes
checking whether to compile with Oracle support... (cached) no
checking whether to compile with PostgreSQL support... (cached) no
checking for style of include used by make... none
checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cl... no
configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH
See `config.log' for more details.

Notice we got an error about no acceptable C compiler being found. To resolve this situation we need to add the path to gcc (or cc) to $PATH. So we open .bashrc file and export new value of $PATH
export PATH

Now to apply changes to our current shell, we "dot" the bashrc file.
 . /.bashrc

Running "gcc -v" now produces
 Reading specs from /usr/local/lib/gcc-lib/sparc-sun-solaris2.10/3.3.2/specs
Configured with: ../configure --with-as=/usr/ccs/bin/as --with-ld=/usr/ccs/bin/ld --disable-nls
Thread model: posix
gcc version 3.3.2

Yay, we can now proceed with running ./configure.

To be continued...
