Subject:Re: Opteron HOWTO?!
View as plain text  
Care to share any secrets?  You guys are running Suse w/ 2.4 kernel yes? 
  Any specifics as far as kernel/glibc/gcc versions.  Are you running 
mysql 4.1.*?  Are you using NPTL?  You using the binary from mysql, or 
building yourself?  Are you running Innodb or Myisam.  You mentioned 
reiserfs correct?  Any problems w/ ext3?

Sorry to bombard you w/ questions, but we have had nothing but horrible 
performance using Opterons, and any specifics you can give would help to 
clear up this mess.  I know that I am not the only person who is seeing 
this flakyiness.
