My Xserve has become unresponsive as of late.  After looking through processes, I find this:

Mysql is crushing my CPU at over 100% usage for a minute, then going away, only to reappear and further bog it down.  So, I kill it.  It reappears.  I restart the server, it reappears.  I then double check that it is not enabled under in the Server Admin preferences and it is not.  So, what other services in 10.6.8 Server require Mysql?  Any help disabling it would be greatly appreciated as the server is almost unusable.

MacBooks, iMacs, Xserves, etc, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

    Review the server console logs and see what relevent information (if any) is being logged related to this.

    If there's something wacky that's auto-relaunching MySQL, the process id will be a moving target.

     

    Launch Console.app and have a look at the MySQL log.

     

    If the system is fairly quiet while you're looking at the logs, then looking at all logged messages with Console.app can be feasible, too.
