MySQL Proxy and microseconds

By default the included Lua within MySQL proxy (0.8.3) does not include socket, necessary for getting microsecond granularity. To setup you have to install Lua and socket on the OS first:

For CentO5

$ sudo yum install lua lua-socket

For Ubuntu

$ sudo apt-get install lua5.1 liblua5.1-socket2

The following enables use within MySQL Proxy.

cp /usr/share/lua/5.1/socket.lua /path/to/mysqlproxy/lib/mysql-proxy/lua
cp -r /usr/lib64/lua/5.1/socket /path/to/mysqlproxy/lib/mysql-proxy/lua
cp -r /usr/lib64/lua/5.1/mime /path/to/mysqlproxy/lib/mysql-proxy/lua

My lua script can now use syntax similar to:

require 'socket'

function read_query( packet )
...
  now=socket.gettime()
  print( string.format("# %s.%3d\n%s;\n",os.date("%X",now),select(2,math.modf(now))*1000 , query))
