Subject:maximum memory used by mysql
View as plain text  
Hi there,

I working on a databank project in the field of cancer research and I need some advice....

my databank is growing quite fast, and I want to upgrade my SGI (Origin 2000) system to
keep up with the amount of data created.
I thought of increasing the memory to a total of about 11 GB. Now I am wondering if mysql
can actually make use of all this memory, or if there is a better way to keep up...

I would be very thankfull if you could help me with some ideas, experience or other
suggestions on how to cope with quite big tables (>300,000,000 entries).

Thank you very much in advance for your kind help
