key_buffer_size + (read_buffer_size + sort_buffer_size) * max_connections = max_mem_usage: 768 + (4 + 4) * 200 = 2368 From the 963 shown in top, I'm guessing you're around 22 concurrent connections. The key buffer is allocated on start up, read/sort buffer on per connection base. So if you want it to use more memory, put more in the key buffer and make sure to leave 1.6G for your max connections. -- Mel Problem with today's modular software: they start with the modules and never get to the software part. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
