Maatkit – a toolkit for users, developers, and administrators of open-source databases


Maatkit is a set of high-quality command-line tools for open-source databases, such as MySQL and PostgreSQL. The tools enable power users to do their work more safely and quickly by relying on tested software instead of scripting things themselves. The toolkit includes functionality such as table checksums, a query profiler, and a visual EXPLAIN tool. It also provides missing features such as checking whether slaves have the same data as the master. You can simply download them and use them. You can view all the tools listed under http://www.maatkit.org/doc/.

Most of Maatkit’s functionality is designed for MySQL. It makes MySQL easier and safer to manage. Maatkit is now shipping by default with many GNU/Linux distributions such as Debian and CentOS. You can use Maatkit to prove replication is working correctly, fix corrupted data, automate repetitive tasks, speed up your servers, and much more.

In addition to MySQL, there is support for PostgreSQL, Memcached, and a growing variety of other databases and technologies.

It has become widely used by companies such as Facebook, government organizations, and banks.
