    I have about 10 of these under the "Process Manager" and am wondering what is causing them.

    /usr/sbin/mysqld--basedir=/--datadir=/var/lib/mysql--user=mysql--pid-file=/var/lib/mysql/svr1.myserver.com.pid--skip-locking--socket=/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock

    Thanks for any assistance on this.

    if you have just 10 of those that is normal for a server with some to moderate database traffic.

    Eash one of those is a child process of the mysqld parent process

    basically each one of those is doing a query so you have up to 10 querys going on at the same time plus mysqld usually keeps 3 child processes available for new connections

    Thanks for replying, the only issue is they are each taking 1.1% of memory, so that adds up to a good percentage for nothing really, I am not running any thing that would really cause this. Thanks again for the information.
