 Hi again :)
  Well we built 3 fairly identical servers for
 and to try replication. At first they all had BSD
 5.4-RELEASE. One had -P4 the other 2 had -p6
  So they were pretty high up there on the patch
  Also to stop them from falling over constantly we
 to insert: 
  (as it seemed the other threads could not support
 at all!)
  Also no one from Mysql seemed to think going to
 STABLE would do anything. It's a very very tough
 to play lets see what happens if.. On production
 servers. The time it takes us just to bounce from
 machine to another is pretty decent. Let alone
 downtime etc.
  Hence my boss's push for Linux. "Since MYSQL says

  Well, I will post whatever happens. As I said the
 most  annoying part to all this is that so far we
 been unable to crash the 5.4 servers via any testing
 means we (and Mysql) could come up with. Yet in
 production they fell over as soon as the load
 to climb and points in between. But never on the
 of decreasing load for the day. (always felt that
 odd)  IE it would die on the bell curve increases
 never at the coresponding downward cycle of the
 busy curve.
  If anyone knows of any particulary evil testing
 programs I would love to know. It's tough to
