This has happened with enough servers at different locations that I have to believe there is a relationship here. I have servers running the latest release of MySQL. I've run the servers on FreeBSD 4.4., 4.7, and 4.8. I am not using the threaded version. On all three versions, on different servers at different sites, I have seen MySQL just go wacky after a while.
Two types of symptoms: 1. mysqld just decides to consume as much of the CPU as possible. 2. new connections to mysql fail It will usually take 1-3 weeks between occurances. I have seen posts relating to this off and on. Is there a known problem with running mysqld on FreeBSD 4.x? What about 5.x? Is it better? I was talking to another FreeBSD admin the other day and he commented on the same thing: "mysqld on our FreeBSD 4.7 boxes just lose it sometimes." Honestly, I am thinking of converting out MySQL db servers from FreeBSD to Linux for this reason, and only this reason. Otherwise, I love FreeBSD, but this is just no good. I would blame myself, but I can't when I get wind that others are having the same problem. Yes, this is a mysql problem probably, and not a FreeBSD problem. However, I'm hoping to get some help or hope here as well as with the mysql people. :) _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
