My MySQL server is consuming a lot of memory.
Memory footprint 1. Memory consumption in descending order (top 4)
MySQL's memory consumption in particular -
Why is there so many number of
mysqld processes? Are they processes / threads? They are consuming a lot of memory. Did I set that number somewhere?
Also my queries take a lot of time to execute and hence my website is getting slow.
A snippet of my my.cnf -
[mysqld] key_buffer = 16M max_allowed_packet = 16M thread_stack = 192K thread_cache_size = 8 myisam-recover = BACKUP query_cache_limit = 1M query_cache_size = 16M innodb_lock_wait_timeout = 120 innodb_buffer_pool_size = 500M [mysqldump] max_allowed_packet = 16M [mysql] #no-auto-rehash # faster start of mysql but no tab completition [isamchk] key_buffer = 16M wait_timeout = 60
I have run
tuning-primer.sh to check what I am doing wrong. Related part of result of

You should raise max_connections INNODB STATUS Current InnoDB index space = 109 M Current InnoDB data space = 10.32 G Current InnoDB buffer pool free = 0 % Current innodb_buffer_pool_size = 500 M Depending on how much space your innodb indexes take up it may be safe to increase this value to up to 2 / 3 of total system memory MEMORY USAGE Max Memory Ever Allocated : 929 M Configured Max Per-thread Buffers : 405 M Configured Max Global Buffers : 534 M Configured Max Memory Limit : 939 M Physical Memory : 3.94 G Max memory limit seem to be within acceptable norms KEY BUFFER Current MyISAM index space = 1 M Current key_buffer_size = 16 M Key cache miss rate is 1 : 204 Key buffer free ratio = 88 % Your key_buffer_size seems to be fine QUERY CACHE Query cache is enabled Current query_cache_size = 16 M Current query_cache_used = 8 M Current query_cache_limit = 1 M Current Query cache Memory fill ratio = 50.29 % Current query_cache_min_res_unit = 4 K MySQL won't cache query results that are larger than query_cache_limit in size SORT OPERATIONS Current sort_buffer_size = 2 M Current read_rnd_buffer_size = 256 K Sort buffer seems to be fine JOINS Current join_buffer_size = 132.00 K You have had 10728 queries where a join could not use an index properly You should enable "log-queries-not-using-indexes" Then look for non indexed joins in the slow query log. If you are unable to optimize your queries you may want to increase your join_buffer_size to accommodate larger joins in one pass. Note! This script will still suggest raising the join_buffer_size when ANY joins not using indexes are found. OPEN FILES LIMIT Current open_files_limit = 1024 files The open_files_limit should typically be set to at least 2x-3x that of table_cache if you have heavy MyISAM usage. Your open_files_limit value seems to be fine TABLE CACHE Current table_open_cache = 64 tables Current table_definition_cache = 256 tables You have a total of 130 tables You have 64 open tables. Current table_cache hit rate is 0% , while 100% of your table cache is in use You should probably increase your table_cache TEMP TABLES Current max_heap_table_size = 16 M Current tmp_table_size = 16 M Of 6404640 temp tables, 48% were created on disk Perhaps you should increase your tmp_table_size and/or max_heap_table_size to reduce the number of disk-based temporary tables Note! BLOB and TEXT columns are not allow in memory tables. If you are using these columns raising these values might not impact your ratio of on disk temp tables. TABLE SCANS Current read_buffer_size = 128 K Current table scan ratio = 206 : 1 read_buffer_size seems to be fine TABLE LOCKING Current Lock Wait ratio = 1 : 84225 Your table locking seems to be fine
