I have created a few events in my db. One is to daily create partition. Another is to summarize data on every second from another table. I notice everything is not running. What would have caused the scheduler to stop? The db is fine working on other stuff without issue.

Below is my mysqladmin debug results.

See the scheduler status: – Phil Mar 14 '13 at 14:10
I tried this show scheduler status; ERROR 1064 (42000): You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'scheduler status' at line 1 – biz14 Mar 14 '13 at 14:19
Carry on reading then! "Beginning with MySQL 5.1.12, event scheduler status information can be obtained by running mysqladmin debug".... – Phil Mar 14 '13 at 14:29
@Phil I had to restart the mysql else we will be loosing lots of data but I have updated my question with mysqladmin debug results anything you can suggest from here? – biz14 Mar 14 '13 at 14:42
Please show the result of SHOW VARIABLES LIKE 'event_scheduler'; – RolandoMySQLDBA Mar 14 '13 at 15:44
