Is there a difference if someone had to make the connection string the a
domain (hosts file entry makes the machine look at its ip) as opposed to
just using localhost.
If so would a performance hit be incurred?
I have this client that has used the domain and in netstat im seeing
tcp 0 0 own.ex.ip:50340 own.ex.ip:3306
tcp 0 0 own.ex.ip:50287 own.ex.ip:3306
tcp 0 0 own.ex.ip:3306 own.ex.ip:50287
tcp 0 0 own.ex.ip:50357 own.ex.ip:3306
tcp 0 0 own.ex.ip:3306 own.ex.ip:50335
But I have another client that is using localhost and netstat is quiet
as a mouse.
This actually never dawned on me. Hence the reason im asking
But the real reason is that the first clients machine is under heavy
load and we are trying to see what can be improved.
