We installed all the "mysql-pro-cert-5.0.17c-0.rhel4.i386" RPM package and need to run stress testing on linux, but we don't run the same "mysql-stress-test.pl" as mysql's website describes. 

Further, we also can't find it after installing the "mysql-max-5.0.22-linux-i686-glibc23" Tar package.

We get the below info from http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysqltest/en/mysql-stress-test.html:

mysql-stress-test.pl — Server Stress Test Program
The mysql-stress-test.pl Perl script performs stress-testing of the MySQL server. (MySQL 5.0 and up only) 

mysql-stress-test.pl requires a version of Perl that has been built with threads support. 

Invoke mysql-stress-test.pl like this: 

shell> mysql-stress-test.pl [options]

mysql-stress-test.pl supports the following options: 

How to repeat:
download all 5.0.17c rpm packages and install them as below:
1. rpm -ivh "MySQL*"
2. all installed compotents is below:
3. find the /mysql-stress-test.pl, but its size is 0.

Suggested fix:
Please add mysql-stress-test.pl to 5.0xx version and make it work.

I examined listed in the report packages and did not find mysql-stress-test.pl in any. Also I examined make_binary_distribution script. It looks like any of binary package has not mysql-stress-test.pl included in.

This still appears to be missing in 5.0.27.  Is there any reason the docs and or packages haven't been updated appropriately?

This is still missing in 5.0.42-enterprise-gpl builds.

This bug is similar to existing packaging bug http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=25486
