We just upgraded the Debian Wheezy(7) to Jessie(8).
All upgrades went smooth except MySQL which I think is causing some or exhaustive slowness specially in the MySQL's information Schema.
the more lively example that is showing this is from PHPMyAdmin --- when we try to update or change a column type, the query takes more than 100 seconds to return back. something similar is happening with other changes on MyISM database tables.
Probable suspects: During Upgrade, we rebooted the server immediately after the upgrade procedure was complete and mysql_upgrade could not complete. This is my own perception as the mysql DB size is more than 400 GB and it might have not completed at all.
Now, the MySQL is behaving insanely on most parts and slowness is observed generally.
Can someone please recommend what would be best option to make things more reliable in terms of the MySQL
Please understand that I have eliminated the risks of Apache2/PHP by completely re-installing them, only left over is the MySQL which is not returning properly.
Can I run the mysql_upgrade now, when the system upgrade is complete and things are back in production -- please suggest.
here is an abstract of my.cnf -- this is a 130 Gigs to RAM Server, with 1000 connections at a given time.
