It ran fine when we were only throwing a few dozen qps at it... when
we tried to throw about 350qps its way, it was much much slower...
slower than our existing server with significantly fewer resources
I never could figure out what the issue was... tried recompiling with
different options, allocating more and less memory to mysql (really
to innodb as all our tables are innodb), and a number of system
tweaks to no avail.
Are you running it on an opteron, or on a xeon? I have heard things
go much smoother on AMD hardware.
Anyways.. the damage is done. We are back on i386 and I just need to
make it go! Right now i am just running with the stable non-PAE
kernel that limits access to 4G of memory while i work this out.
