Re: MariaDB and Sun CoolThread


And then because this is Sun CoolThread hardware, each connection runs
on really, really slow CPUs. And 48 threads running concurrently will
get a lot of mutex contention from MySQL so maybe running 4 copies of
mysqld with each instance locked down to 12 CoolThread CPUs will help.
