Subject:Why so many mysqld lines in process list on Linux box
View as plain text  
We had an issue the other day where we could not access the myslq database
we have on our redhat linux 7.2 box.

when I did a 

ps -ef |grep mysql

I got the following.

	root       645     1  0  2002 ?        00:00:00 [safe_mysqld]
	root       688   645  0  2002 ?        00:01:31

Why so many?  Is this a problem?

Thanks in advance
