MySQL dead but subsys locked - Amazon EC2

Hey I had this issue on my server yesterday, but it was SNMPd that showed locked up.


This is what I did to resolve it.


1. cd /var/lock/subsys

2. delete snmp or mysql in your case

3. service snmpd start


Looks like this happens when the current running process somehow gets corrupt and then someone tries to restart it, but the PID is already in use by the original process and that is why you get the subsys locked message.


Hope this helps.
