Subject:Stopping MySQL taking down a server?
View as plain text  
This may be a silly question but what can be done to stop
load-intensive MySQL processes taking down a server? Things like
adding fulltext indexes to very large tables, or selects on very large
(multi-million-row) tables just completely kill the box until they
complete.

I don't mind how long these things take but the box shouldn't become
unresponsive while they are running.
