I was combining 14GB and 3GB partitions. Table type is MyISAM. The thing that looked odd to me is that the CPU was maxed out the entire time and there was negligible IOWAIT. I've also seen a few other issues:

1. It's much faster to create a new, empty table that is partitioned and insert data than it is to create a partition layout for an existing table.

2. Killing a REORGANIZE PARTITION has no effect except for changing the process to a killed state. Meaning that the reorg still completes normally and is also replicated.

We are running MySQL 5.1.52-log on 64-bit Centos 5.6. The machine is an AWS m2.xlarge instance type (17.1GB RAM). Kernel is Here is the buffers info. I should note that is was the data copy phase that was slow and not the index rebuild.
