The odd problems we've been seeing with MySQL on FreeBSD have flared up recently. I just had to throw all traffic off our east coast servers and send it to the west coast (ouch!) to restart one of the east coast machines. The other east coast machine has been off-line since it got messed up on Friday.

It seems that FreeBSD's threading is to blame once again. Grr. I'm working to get a good build of MySQL with LinuxThreads support to see if this all goes away. In the meantime, things are quite fragile. I'm starting to really wish we had a Linux box on the east coast. Right now they're all on the west cost.

Damn you, Murphy. Can't you ever just leave me alone for a week?
