comment Dynamically Restrict What CPU's a new process runs
Lots of words, but hardly descriptive. From what you've given it's unclear what makes you think you can't just set CPU affinity to needed processes. linux.die.net/man/1/taskset

comment MYSQL - is LOCALHOST speedy than i.e. (domain) mysql.domain.com
Actually my answer was simply put, indeed. If you compare TCP/IP stack and UNIX domain sockets (aka IPC sockets) for data transfer on the same host, IPC would be faster. But IPC is limited to same host, it doesn't support "remote hosts" connections at all. It means if you have to connect to remote SQL server, you can't use IPC for that directly.
