——– Recommendations —————————————————–
General recommendations:
Add skip-innodb to MySQL configuration to disable InnoDB
MySQL started within last 24 hours – recommendations may be inaccurate
Enable the slow query log to troubleshoot bad queries
Set thread_cache_size to 4 as a starting value
Your applications are not closing MySQL connections properly
Variables to adjust:
query_cache_size (>= 8M)
thread_cache_size (start at 4)

Interesting…. as I see this job is not just set and forget but must be running regularly to identified a running process.

P.S : my.cnf location can be seen from ps command

# ps -ax | grep mysql
96928 ??  Is       0:00.01 /bin/sh /usr/local/bin/mysqld_safe –defaults-extra-file=/var/db/mysql/my.cnf –user=mysql –datadir=/var/db/mysql –pid-file=/var/db/mysql/

or if its not exist you can copy one from share

# ls /usr/local/share/mysql | grep my-
