Ive set up my new VPS and mysqld is using 60% - 90% cpu and 6% memory per process (6-8 processors). Im not running any databases yet, so its currently not being used


Heres the PID thats causing the issue


/usr/sbin/mysqld --basedir=/ --datadir=/var/lib/mysql --user=mysql --log-error=/var/lib/mysql/site.com.err --pid-file=/var/lib/mysql/site.com.pid

Why is it using so many resources. I killed the proccess but it keeps returning, ive restarted mysql server, check /etc/my.cnf for errors, still no luck


I assuming --log-error=/var/lib/mysql/site.com.err is writing to a log and the PID's are lasting for 74Hours+ . Ive checked the site.com.err log and it doesnt have any errors


So whats causing mysqld to use so many resources?

I took basedir away from /etc/my.cnf because mysql couldnt restart with it, but the PID has --basedir=/


Im running the latest version


root@blue [~]#  mysql --version

mysql  Ver 14.14 Distrib 5.1.56, for pc-linux-gnu (i686) using readline 5.1
