Ahh, an interesting suggestion. However, 4017 dropped RX packets over an
uptime of 1088 days isn't a lot :-) I guess that kind of behaviour would
also have shown up in Nagios and Munin; nor would killing and restarting
mysqld be likely to have fixed the issue.
Still, I'd never have thought of that - thanks.
