Troubleshooting the sh mysql_load_db.sh script for dbt2

I’ve been working with dbt2 benchmarking tool recently and had a few issues I thought I’d detail here for anyone else having the same issues. I was attempting to load the dbt2 database with test data;

sh mysql_load_db.sh --database dbt2 --path /tmp/dbt2-w3 --mysql-path /usr/bin/mysql --user root --password secret

The script threw the following error;

Loading of DBT2 dataset located in /tmp/dbt2-w3 to database dbt2.

SCRIPT INTERRUPTED

Whatever combination or order of switches I provided the script it always complained. To get the script to run I simply hard-coded the appropriate switch in the call to the mysql client;

vi mysql_load_db.sh

Search for a function called command_exec and change this line…

eval "$1";

To the following;

eval "$1 -psecret";

Replacing “secret” for the appropriate mysql user password. While this solved the initial problem it did uncover another problem with the load;

sh mysql_load_db.sh --database dbt2 --path /tmp/dbt2-w3 --mysql-path /usr/bin/mysql --user root

To fix this edit the mysql_load_db.sh and search for the command_exec function. Change this line…

"$MYSQL $DB_NAME -e \"LOAD DATA $LOCAL INFILE \\\"$DB_PATH/$FN.data\\\" \

To…

"$MYSQL $DB_NAME -e \"LOAD DATA $LOCAL INFILE \\\"$DB_PATH/$FN.data\\\" IGNORE\

The IGNORE will skip any errors so the rest of the process does not fail. Now I was able to load my data!
