pt-online-schema-change and nohup

Hi all,

I am using pt-online-schema-change and running it with a nohup. The change is a long one - 40 hours, so needs protecting with a nohup command. I maybe doing some wrong but when I run the following and lose my session it fails:

nohup pt-online-schema-change -u root --chunk-size-limit=0 --chunk-size=1000000 --max-load=Threads_running=100 --max-lag=6000 --statistics --recursion-method=none --set-vars lock_wait_timeout=1800 --execute --alter=“ADD COLUMN suetest_col101 int” D=suetest,t=suetest,u=root &

DROP TRIGGER IF EXISTS suetest.pt_osc_suetest_suetest_del;
DROP TRIGGER IF EXISTS suetest.pt_osc_suetest_suetest_upd;
DROP TRIGGER IF EXISTS suetest.pt_osc_suetest_suetest_ins;

Thanks for looking.

Did you try using screen (& nohup), you might have some different results here without having to drop the session?
