How Much Memory Does the Server Take?

If you are interested to know how much memory your MySQL server is taking, you can use Windows Task Manager to find out. Try to following this tutorial exercise:

  • Start your MySQL server.
  • Press Ctrl-Alt-Del and click Task Manager. The Task Manager window shows up.
  • Click the Process tab. Then click the Image Name to sort processes by name.
  • Locate the "mysqld.exe" entry. See the Mem Usage column. mysqld.exe should use something like 9,000K to 10,000K initially. But memory usage will grow as more client programs are connecting to MySQL server.
