View as plain text  
If you are confident that it's not the network, that pretty much leaves RAM or disk as the
source of your problem. Assuming that you are seeing no performance issues on the master
(I expect you would have mentioned), let's focus on the slave.

The behaviour you describe sounds to me like you have entered swap space: everythingthing
is working fine, just in incredibly slow motion.
What does vmstat report?  Try someithng like 
  $ vmstat 2 60
and see if any swap traffic can be observed?

How about cat /proc/<pid>/status ? What does VmSwap suggest?

Hey Morgan,

Thanks for the tip.  Might come in handy.

But, I'm positive it's not a disconnect / reconnect thing.  Or, at least not one affected
by that timeout.

I can do a watch ls -lh in the binlog dir, and see the relay log increasing in size by a M
every 4 or 5 seconds or so.  About 200kbyte/sec / 1.6Mbit/sec right now.

It seems very steady too.  As in, if I look at bytes, they're constantly increasing..
just, slow..
