I've got mysql 3.23.47 running on a freebsd 4.5 box for long time without
problems, until now that consumes nearly all available CPU.
Also, I am unable to stop the server using mysqladmin -u root shutdown (the
process freezes) neither can restart it. If I kill -9 the process it
restarts and keeps using all my resources.
Aparently there isn't any other active process on the machine.
I have checked at mysql.com but I couldn't find any related information.
¿Where could this problem come from?
Thank you very much in advance
