So this is my first public publish to PyPi, without further delays, here is the full project description
ApTop ia a top(1) alike monitoring utility for Apache.
Being daily involved in monitoring system load in shared environment I find it lacking proper tool for monitoring Apache behavior in real time. Granted there are some tools for this job, they are usually of limited options for some monitoring needs.

As you well know InnoDB will store its data either in one big system tablespace called ibdata or you can store it in multiple tablespaces (innodb_file_per_table). In either case InnoDB by default will not reclaim unused space gained when deleting data. Using innodb_file_per_table will separate each InnoDB table in its own .ibd file and it can be easily reclaimed by doing optimize table, using system tablespace will get you stuck since there is no real supported method for reducing you ibdata file and reclaiming unused disk space.
One could wonder why would anyone want to ...

In one of my previous post I made a tutorial how to bypass corporate firewalls
and gain access into your office computer. It work well if you are at your home and you need ssh access (or any other service) to your office computer. However if the situation is reversed, and you need to access some outside service which your firewall is blocking then you would use this little tutorial with explanations. Although all this is covered in the ssh man pages, one always learn best by real life examples, so here I'll try ...
