The settings for my-huge.ini read as follows...
Code:
# Example MySQL config file for very large systems.
#
# This is for a large system with memory of 1G-2G where the system runs mainly

# The MySQL server
[mysqld]
port      = 3306
socket      = /tmp/mysql.sock
skip-locking
key_buffer = 384M
max_allowed_packet = 1M
table_cache = 512
sort_buffer_size = 2M
read_buffer_size = 2M
read_rnd_buffer_size = 8M
myisam_sort_buffer_size = 64M
thread_cache_size = 8
query_cache_size = 32M


My question is do the above settings represent 1G, basically I'm trying to get the max from my machine, ie: can I go higher ?

PC 3ghz running 2g

Marty_,

The above settings are good for a computer with more than 1GB. But the best is to run some tests on your specific database and scripts to know whether such a configuration really inceases the performance. In some cases, giving high values for some parameters can have the reverse effect and will worsen the speed.

I'm currently running the above settings and yes it has improved my page load times.

I noticed(later) that the 4g settings are similar for some settings so I guess I can tweak the rest ie: some are 4times higher and some remain the same.

Thanks for the reply...
