Sysbench is a tool to analyze the MySQL performance. I downloaded it and extracted but there is no executable file. Files having extensions like .sh or .c or .h are available. I gone through the documentation. Even, I did not get any info about how to install and use this great tool on Windows machine?

Seems you need to compile that yourself – a_horse_with_no_name Mar 27 '14 at 13:26

You need to compile it yourself.

I downloaded the tarball and read the README-WIN.txt. It certainly indicates that it can be compiled on Windows using CMake.
