MySQL Extremely High Disk Activity (Read Operations)

view story

http://serverfault.com – I have 1GB Linode VPS with a standard LAMP stack. Apache is tuned fine but for some reason MySQL's disk usage is high. This is causing really slow site load times. RAM and CPU usage are fine. Can anyone give me any pointers on tuning mysql's disk performance? I'm using InnoDB. iotop output is below. Total DISK READ: 38.50 M/s | Total DISK WRITE: 27.20 K/s TID PRIO USER DISK READ> DISK WRITE SWAPIN IO COMMAND (HowTos)
