comment How to re-create /tmp/mysql.sock?
How do you start it? You can have an init script even if you install from source. If you don't have one, just killall mysqld and restart it however you normally do.

I've used tcpdump before to watch traffic over the wire, but how would I use it to troubleshoot performance? Also, forgive my ignorance, but what is PV?
