    I have noticed that since cpanel did a mysql update in which nptl based systems using mysql 4.0 created a compatability issue that, every day or 2, my ram+swap gets filled up to the max.

    i have created an addon 1gb swap file, this morning i logged into the server and my 640MB of ram as well as my enter 2gb of swap was 100% full.

    In order to clean it up, i did a service mysql restart.

    This has been happening ever since the nptl message popped up in whm. Most times, if i dont catch the 100% usage, the linux kernel oom-killer process goes out and ends up killing httpd and mysql as well as other random processes as designed.

    My question is.. what did cpanel change software-wise to create this mysql mem leak that seems to have been formed, and is anyone else having this issue?

    I have another friend that is experiencing the exact same issue which running on fedora core 4.

    let me know, thanks.

    What is your current version of MySQL? The problem is definitely not MySQL. It might be a bad/insecure Php/cgi script that loops indefinitely causing this problem.
