    Mysql slow?

    Maybe its just em and I dont understand, but when my site slows down to a near halt, I do a tracert and report it in a ticket.

    I try and explain to the support person that it only seems to slow when accessing the Mysql database, ie: my BB systems and my CMS system that I am working on at the moment.

    The response is usually - "we can access your site without a problem, can you send us a tracert when this happens again"

    well, the tracert's always(well nearly, im on host17) are fine, in fact getting to my homepage is fine - its just the other parts of my site that slow down.

    Can anybody tell me if the MySQL server is on a different box or is it kept on the same one as apache - I am trying to figure out if its a congestion between the webserver and mysql.

    Many thanks to anyone who can shed some light on this for me

    Rgards,
    Tony.

    PS. the thing that prompted me to post this is that its slowing down again.

    Since we access mysql in scripts with "localhost," I'd say it must be on the same machine. I can't imagine what could be causeing the slowdown for just MySQL...

    thanks Jason, i didnt think of the localhost bit! lol - I feel stupid now

    The slowdown seems to go in pockets - it didnt happen like this before the server move

    but then a lot of things other things happend before we moved, and I dont really want to talk about them


    Many Thanks,
    Tony.

    LOL! It wasn't my intent to make you feel stupid.
