I wrote a one line shell script that runs swapinfo -h and cron'd it to run once an hour. Each hour the amount of swap space being used has increased by 100 to 200 MB. Eventually swap is exhausted and the system kills a binary. (It's not just mysql. Other things are being killed as well.)Quoting [EMAIL PROTECTED]:-------------- Original message ---------------------- From: [EMAIL PROTECTED] +pid 37308 (mysqld), uid 88, was killed: out of swap space +swap_pager: out of swap space +swap_pager_getswapspace(1): failedIf you kill mysql server, does the swap space free up? Are there any known issues between the version of MySQL that you're running and FreeBSD 6.0?MySQL not having a properly tuned config file for the system it runs on? It isknown to consume vast amounts of resources if not properly configured...
What would cause swap to increase steadily like that? Something not releasing swap when it's no longer needed?
