I'm running mysql-standard-4.0.12. The machine is a 2.4ghz server w/
1 gig of ram. I have been screwing around with the conf settings, heres
some of the settings:
set-variable = query_cache_type=1
set-variable = query_cache_size=2M
set-variable = max_connections=512
set-variable = low-priority-updates=ON
set-variable = key_buffer=256M
set-variable = max_allowed_packet=1M
set-variable = table_cache=512
set-variable = sort_buffer=5M
set-variable = read_rnd_buffer=5M
set-variable = record_buffer=3M
set-variable = myisam_sort_buffer_size=64M
set-variable = thread_cache=8
set-variable = thread_concurrency=2
Any help is appreciated.
