Re: How to evaluate server speed?
Chris, thanks for the tips. Yes, WestHost is a little peculiar in what it chooses to make available to shell customers — there’s no tcsh, either.
“/etc/rc.d/init.d/mysqld restart” was what killed my MySQL and “/etc/rc.d/init.d/mysqld start” is a no-op. Sigh. I’ve got a query in to WestHost support.
And thanks for the warning about the diagnostics. Makes sense. I’ll disable them for now.
