I recently migrated an old server running MySQL to a new VPS running MariaDB 5.5. I don't have too much running on the server (just a few PHP sites) and free memory seems to be OK, but the DB keeps crashing--sometimes every few days, other times within a few hours.
I receive the following errors in the logs:
131231 1:43:04 [ERROR] mysqld: Out of memory (Needed 128917504 bytes) 131231 1:43:04 [ERROR] mysqld: Out of memory (Needed 96681984 bytes) 131231 1:43:04 [ERROR] mysqld: Out of memory (Needed 72499200 bytes) 131231 1:43:04 [ERROR] mysqld: Out of memory (Needed 54362112 bytes) 131231 1:43:04 InnoDB: The InnoDB memory heap is disabled 131231 1:43:04 InnoDB: Mutexes and rw_locks use GCC atomic builtins 131231 1:43:04 InnoDB: Compressed tables use zlib 184.108.40.206 131231 1:43:04 InnoDB: Using Linux native AIO 131231 1:43:04 InnoDB: Initializing buffer pool, size = 128.0M InnoDB: mmap(137756672 bytes) failed; errno 12 131231 1:43:04 InnoDB: Completed initialization of buffer pool 131231 1:43:04 InnoDB: Fatal error: cannot allocate memory for the buffer pool 131231 1:43:04 [ERROR] Plugin 'InnoDB' init function returned error. 131231 1:43:04 [ERROR] Plugin 'InnoDB' registration as a STORAGE ENGINE failed. 131231 1:43:04 [Note] Plugin 'FEEDBACK' is disabled. 131231 1:43:04 [ERROR] Unknown/unsupported storage engine: InnoDB 131231 1:43:04 [ERROR] Aborting 131231 1:43:04 [Note] /usr/sbin/mysqld: Shutdown complete
I've played with the my.cnf settings for InnoDB Heap, which does not seem to help. Here's the relevant portion:
innodb_buffer_pool_size = 128M innodb_log_buffer_size = 8M innodb_file_per_table = 1 innodb_open_files = 400 innodb_io_capacity = 400 innodb_flush_method = O_DIRECT
I seem to have "plenty" of free RAM, and I have some swap available as well:
root@phoenix:~# free -m total used free shared buffers cached Mem: 994 923 71 0 19 417 -/+ buffers/cache: 486 508 Swap: 1023 131 892
How can I solve / troubleshoot this issue? I've scoured the interwebz for clues, but nothing has helped.
