mysqltest_embedded is similar but is built with support for the libmysqld embedded server.
Features of mysqltest:
By default, mysqltest reads the test case on the standard input. To run mysqltest this way, you normally invoke it like this:
shell> mysqltest [options] [db_name] < test_file
You can also name the test case file with a --test-file=file_name option.
mysqltest supports the following options:
Display a help message and exit.
The base directory for tests.
Define the mysqltest variable $BIG_TEST as 1. This option was removed in MySQL 4.1.23, 5.0.30, and 5.1.13.
The directory where character sets are installed. This option was added in MySQL 4.1.23, 5.0.32, and 5.1.13.
Compress all information sent between the client and the server if both support compression.
Use cursors for prepared statements (implies --ps-protocol). This option was added in MySQL 5.0.19.
The default database to use.
Write a debugging log if MySQL is built with debugging support. The default debug_options value is 'd:t:S:i:O,/tmp/mysqltest.trace'.
Print some debugging information when the program exits. This option was added in MySQL 5.1.21.
Print debugging information and memory and CPU usage statistics when the program exits. This option was added in MySQL 5.1.14.
Connect to the MySQL server on the given host.
Include the contents of the given file before processing the contents of the test file. The included file should have the same format as other mysqltest test files. This option has the same effect as putting a --source file_name command as the first line of the test file. This option was added in MySQL 4.1.23, 5.0.30, and 5.1.7.
The directory to use for log files. This option was added in MySQL 5.1.14.
Write the line number and elapsed time to test_file.progress. This option was added in MySQL 4.1.23, 5.0.30, and 5.1.12.
The maximum number of connection attempts when connecting to server. This option was added in MySQL 4.1.23, 5.0.23, and 5.1.11.
Do not read default options from any option files.
The password to use when connecting to the server. If you use the short option form (-p), you cannot have a space between the option and the password. If you omit the password value following the --password or -p option on the command line, you are prompted for one.
The TCP/IP port number to use for the connection.
Use the prepared-statement protocol for communication.
Suppress all normal output. This is a synonym for --silent.
Record the output that results from running the test file into the file named by the --result-file option, if that option is given.
This option specifies the file for test case expected results. --result-file, together with --record, determines how mysqltest treats the test actual and expected results for a test case:
Pass the argument as an argument to the embedded server. For example, --server-arg=--tmpdir=/tmp or --server-arg=--core. Up to 64 arguments can be given.
Read arguments for the embedded server from the given file. The file should contain one argument per line.
Suppress all normal output.
Do not use memory allocation checking.
Cause all sleep commands in the test case file to sleep num seconds. This option does not affect real_sleep commands.
As of MySQL 5.0.23, an option value of 0 can be used, which effectively disables sleep commands in the test case.
The socket file to use when connecting to localhost (which is the default host).
Execute DML statements within a stored procedure. For every DML statement, mysqltest creates and invokes a stored procedure that executes the statement rather than executing the statement directly. This option was added in MySQL 5.0.19.
Read test input from this file. The default is to read from the standard input.
The file where the timing in microseconds is written.
The temporary directory where socket files are put.
The MySQL username to use when connecting to the server.
Verbose mode. Print out more information what the program does.
Display version information and exit.
Every SELECT statement is wrapped inside a view. This option was added in MySQL 5.0.19.
