Troubles with MySQL 5.5 on FreeBSD 9

FreeBSD 9 seems to have some troubles with MySQL 5.5.20. A customer has moved from MySQL 5.0 on Linux to MySQL 5.5 on FreeBSD 9. He experienced a lot of periodic slow downs on the new, much stronger, system which he has not seen on the old Linux box.

This slow downs were also shown in high CPU system time but we could not see any I/O going on.

When we looked into MySQL we have seen many threads in Opening tables state in the MySQL processlist.

How MySQL behaves with many schemata, tables and partitions

Introduction

Recently a customer claimed that his queries were slow some times and sometimes they were fast.

First idea: Flipping query execution plan caused by InnoDB could be skipped because it affected mainly MyISAM tables.

Second idea: Caching effects by either the file system cache caching MyISAM data or the MyISAM key buffer caching MyISAM indexes were examined: File system cache was huge and MyISAM key buffer was only used up to 25%.

I was a bit puzzled...
