View as plain text  
Good Morning all

		QUOTE:	"We have a MySQL database where the 
				INNODB_BUFFER_POOL_SIZE keeps on filling up"

	I have monitored this issue for the last couple of weeks and even
though the buffer pool usage is increasing slowly, it is still heading to
become 100% full.

	It used to vary in the past where it would increase and decrease
each day as required, however this does not seem to be happening anymore.

	Does anybody know whether there is a process that is supposed to
manage this or otherwise clear this occasionally that might not be working?

	We are getting quite a bit of issues with the client wanting to know
why this is happening, however thus far I haven't been able to find any
conclusive answers, not even through google.

	Any assistance would be appreciated.


   Thanking everyone in advance.

    

Regards
Machiel

[JS] At the others have said, the whole purpose of a buffer pool is to hold
as 
much frequently used data as possible. That lowers the probability of having

to do physical I/O, which is much slower than memory access. The buffer pool

should be full.

[JS] It does surprise me that the buffer pool fills up, even though it is 
three times the size of your database. My guess is that whatever mechanism
is 
used to "scavenge" space in the buffer pool isn't triggered until the buffer

pool is full; but that is simply a guess, I really have no idea.
