MySQL Optimization
Huge increase in traffic this week, causing MySQL problems.

One of my sites this week has all of a sudden seen a huge(relatively speaking) increase in traffic this week. I guess Google decided it liked us.

The problem is, the server has gone down twice. Each time, MySQL was probably the cause due to extremely high CPU usage. My stats won't even run because of the cpu load, so I can't even tell how much traffic I'm really getting.

The server is a linux based pentium 4 2.8ghz. I can upgrade, but pretty sure, I just need to do some db optimization.

My question is, where do I start? Is there a MySQL optimization checklist I could start going through? If not, can y'all post some suggestions?

One tool is mentionned in the documentation above
One tool that I am aware with is the MySQL Slow Log Parser, written in Perl by Nathanial Hendler.

Again, the doc is old (written in 2003) so I am sure there are more tools available
