don't know how mysql_proxy service got installed, would like to remove it

Asked by Joel Wilcox

I have a server running Centos 6.x and somehow mysql_proxy daemon is installed and running. We have no use for it, and it begins at init (i think) but i can't find any files (config) for it. I'd like to remove it altogether. Is there a script or a package I can download that will remove it? The reason I'd like to remove it, is when we have users logged in, it will use up to 10% of the processors and It begins to affect performance.

Most likely, it is enough to remove it via a rpm command?

I haven't used an RPM based distribution for ages, but it should be something like: "rpm -qa|grep 'mysql.*proxy'
and then "rpm -e PACKAGENAME" where you use the package name from the first command?
