I started the week working on my stressout database stress testing tool (with real traffic).

The goal for this weekend was to feed the generated lua scripts to sysbench. But what is this? There is a new sysbench!

Here are the things I had to preinstall for it to work on Centos 7:

yum install vim

Oddly, I had vi but not vim, and vim is required for xxd.

yum install mysql-devel

Can only run on systems level otherwise.

yum install openssl-devel

Otherwise failed on missing ssl, crypto, and z libraries.
