Subject:MySQL, FreeBSD problem
View as plain text  
Hello all.

I have an application that does a lot of table creation and writing for 
a FreeBSD 4.4 SMP machine.  Over time, I begin to see the following 

DBD::mysql::db tables failed: Can't read dir of './p0_samt_trans/' (Errcode: 2) at
/var/SAMT/code/SAMTlib/ line 2552, <FILE> chunk 138.
DBD::mysql::db do failed: Table 'p3_samt_trans.p3_int_sender_2_12_0' doesn't exist at
/var/SAMT/code/SAMTlib/ line 2301, <FILE> chunk 138.

These errors seem to happen for no reason.  If I issue a select, do or 
anything else 2 seconds later, I get no errors.  The table in question 
above does in fact exist, although MySQL claims that it does not.  

The machine (or mysql for that matter) is not under particularly heavy 
load.  It simply occassionally just cant read a database directory for 
some reason or another.  A fraction of a second later, the same command 
will work fine.

Now, I am using the 3.23.47 Free BSD binary from the MySQL site on this 

I notice that the problem continues to get worse as time goes on.  If I 
restart mysqld however, the problem seems to go away for  a bit.  But 
after 2-3 days, the problem comes back.

Any ideas? thoughts?

Any assistance with this problem would be welcomed.
