So, expanding upon my previous post, I wrote a simple python script that would kill all queries running on a MySQL instance based on a host wildcard or runtime of a query.
Yes, yes, I know about mk-kill, but I enjoy writing little scripts. Writing trivial scripts is always a great way to get better.
As you may have seen from previous posts, my wife has a book out and as a loving husband and obsessive computer nerd I wrote a script to aggregate and graph The Boneshaker’s Amazon Bestsellers Rank.
Sure, it needs more work and the Amazon Rank doesn’t take into account sales at other outlets… but, what can you do?
