MySQL 5.6 and Up: High Memory Usage

Date April 27, 2016

Had a problem with a fresh install of MySQL 5.7 using more than normal memory.

Researching around the net, one feature that was added (5.6?) that fixed my problem was performance schema ( performance_schema ).

Disabling is easy enough as adding performance_schema=0 in my.cnf config file.

 

Thanks to Joel Abraham for the fix.
