Sometimes our Internet conection goes down and then all conections via
tcp/ip to our the mysql server (v.4.1.5) are slow.
I've read in the manual that one could use --skip-name-resolve as a
possible solution to this problem under windows.
The thing is that I've set this option int /etc/my.cnf in this way
port = 3306
socket = /tmp/mysql.sock
but I don't see it in the output from ps aux | grep mysql
my questions are
Is the option well set and in the right place ?
This slowness problem could occur also on a server running SuSe Linux
