Hi I have the following in my server: As you can see myql is hugging 40 Gigs in VIRT and 6 Gigs in RES. and free -mh shows this: so why is mysql using around 40 Gigs in VIRT? while in RES it is showing only 6 Gigs? how can I bring it down? I am using the settings below: I have a single database on the server of size 20 gigs with the following table and index sizes: First of all, is it normal to have that value for mysql (the 40 Gigs), if not, what might be causing it? how to proceed, any ideas, suggestions are welcome. Mike.
