vi mysqltuner.pl

Press Keys:- <ESC> and <:>

Enter:- 1,$s/\`mysql/\`\/opt\/lampp\/bin\/mysql/g

Running mysqltuner and obtaining the performance analysis:

Shell> ./mysqltuner.pl

Following is the Sample Output from mysqltuner script::

General recommendations:

Run OPTIMIZE TABLE to defragment tables for better performance

Increase table_cache gradually to avoid file descriptor limits

Variables to adjust:

table_cache (> 64)
