    Default A PID that is waaaay to greedy

    I've been experiencing an inordinate server load on a forum site I run.

    When I look at the CPU usage it is usually mySql that is the hog.

    Thing is, the load should not be slowing the server to a crawl.

    This is the PID that I always see as the culprit.

    /usr/sbin/mysqld--basedir=/--datadir=/var/lib/mysql--user=mysql--pid-file=/var/lib/mysql/server1.sitenameremoved.com.pid--skip-locking


    Can anyone tell me if there is something different about that PID?

    any help will be greatly appreciated. If I can solve this server load problem I'll be willing to give a couple thousand banner impressions to the person who I deem responsible for the fix.


    Note:

    The MYSQL files were moved and chowned to their location, it's possble that there were errors in the way this was done.
