    Hi PeterP;

    The --output parameter is used to specify the output type, not location. How you direct the output into a file would depend on what operating system you are running it on. For a Linux type system, simply add "> filename.txt" to the end of your command, such as:

    pt-query-digest my-slow-query.log > my-slow-query-log.digest

    Maybe adding some tutorial article for absolute begginers would help more people
