linux eats all memory, seems like it is not for specific application
TOP shows that almost all the memory is consued on a dedicated MySQL box. I stopped mysql and checked the top and there is no difference. There is no other process running that would consume that kind of memory. How do I release the locked memory?
# /etc/init.d/mysqld status mysqld dead but subsys locked # free -m total used free shared buffers cached Mem: 35007 34913 94 0 186 33045 -/+ buffers/cache: 1681 33326 Swap: 0 0 0
Do I need to restart the server?
