I'm configuring a new web-server.
I've noticed that mysql 5.1 (default installation) is taking up 191 MB without any catalogs configured. This is also without any programs logged into mysql and zero queries having been run on it.
This seems a bit excessive.
Any thoughts on how to reduce this amount without significantly effecting speed?
Edit: I just noticed in the Resource Monitor that Commit column lists 191 MB, while the Working Set column reads 33 MB. Private Column shows 28 MB. In the Task Manager Processes Tab, it only shows 28 MB. A big concern of mine is that the Physical Memory Usage in the Performance Tab of the Task Manager shows that the full 191 is beign used (It seems to be allocating the full "Commit Column" amount because 671/980 MB are being used when MySQL is the only major thing installed).
