I’ve been using MySQL 5.7.20 on Ubuntu 16.04.2 for a while and I’ve noticed that it currently uses far too much memory than what I would expect. I have around 700 tables which are all MyISAM.
I’ve a 128GB RAM server (which uses the memory to do other stuff) and the MySQL memory usage is around 51GB. Here is what
ps aux | grep mysql gives me
mysql 7306 105 41.2 63640784 54426684 ? Ssl Dec06 5272:34 /usr/sbin/mysqld
I would expect to be more around 40GB. When I start MySQLTuner, I get the following
[--] Physical Memory : 125.8G [--] Max MySQL memory : 42.4G [--] Other process memory: 43.8G [--] Total buffers: 40.2G global + 8.8M per thread (256 max threads) [--] P_S Max memory usage: 72B [--] Galera GCache Max memory usage: 0B [OK] Maximum reached memory usage: 42.4G (33.68% of installed RAM) [OK] Maximum possible memory usage: 42.4G (33.67% of installed RAM)
This confuses me since it says that the max mysql memory is 42.4GB, whereas when I do my
ps aux I have almost 10GB more!
Finally here is my mysqld.conf file

Could you help me understanding where those missing 10GB are coming from, and how can I reclaim them ?
