I was unfortunate enough to have run pt-query-advisor on a general query log of 75GB:
pt-query-advisor --type genlog general.log
This (probably expectingly) ate up all the memory on the server and required a hard reboot. Luckily this was a dev server!
Anyway, the server is a 12GB machine running 64-bit RHEL 5.6.
I was wondering if there is a file size limit on this tool and others (pt-index-usage and pt-query-digest comes to mind, if they can handle general query logs).
Or, barring that, is there a tool that will break a general log into smaller manageable files?
