Ok ;)

Yep, and I'm the last who would want it to get slower.

There are querys that modify more than table ?

Yep, the first point will do fine. The other points we used allready, but
there are some tables we would hate to separate.

Yep, it's exactly what we do. We simply droped all tables we didn't want to
Helps by the way with temporary tables too;)
Only the bin-log is still growing.

No, both didn't die, but we could not get any more out of them.

There are surely no updates on the slave. We started developing on one DB
(now Master) and
later added the Slaves and redirected all selects to them.
In the error-log it says...
Error reading packet from server: Lost connection to MySQL server during
query (0)
...and this every 60 seconds
Error reading packet from server: bogus data in log event (0)

At this point (during development) the DB is running with an average of 160
querys/second, surely not the problem.
There are about 2GB binlog/day at the moment. After we set the page online
it will be twice to thrice this much.

ONE other thing I forgot, log-rotation.
We do it actually with an cron-triggered sh-script but it would be more
comfortable (secure) to do via mysql.


cd /mysql/dbs

umask 117

for i in `cat $INDEX_FILE`; do

echo "Aktuelles File: $LAST_BIN"
FDATE=`date -r $INDEX_FILE +%d`

if [ $FDATE -ne `date +%d` ]; then
  echo "I've to flush(Date)"
  /mysql/bin/mysqladmin -umysql -pXXXXX flush-logs
elif [ `ls -s $LAST_BIN | cut -d" " -f1` -gt 524288 ]; then
  echo "I've to flush(Size)"
  /mysql/bin/mysqladmin -umysql -pXXXXX flush-logs
 # Nach dem Flushen sollte man nicht gleich versuchen, das Index-File zu
