MySQL Optimization - Large Memory Systems?
I’ve got this crazy great server machine and I’m currently trying to figure out the best way to set it up for optimal MySQL usage.
The kicker to this question is that the server has 16GB of memory, so the question I have is, is it a good idea to setup a LARGE ram disk and let the MySQL datafiles live in that, or is it just better to let mysql live on the Harddrives and use tons of cache memory.
