Does anyone know of any Utilities or scripts out there for partition management. Most of our partitioning is range based and I have a set of home grown scripts to expand as needed as well as maintain retention policies per table that drops partitions.
As with most things there is feature creep on functionality requirements needing changes.
This seems like a problem that would have been solved all ready but I'm not able to find any good tools. Are there any out there you have found useful?
I saw some attempts to do this maint. as mysql events. That's a neat trick but really not suited for me.
