Subject cache sizes using percentages
Date Tue, 17 Aug 2010 17:55:27 GMT
if i set a key cache size of 100% the way i understand how that works is:

- the cache is not write through, but read through
- a key gets added to the cache on the first read if not already available
- the size of the cache will always increase for ever item read.  so if you
have 100mil items your key cache will grow to 100mil

Here are my questions:

if that is the case then what happens if you only have enough mem to store
10mil items in your key cache?
do you lose the other 90% how is it determined what is removed?
will the server keep adding til it gets OOM?
if you add a row cache as well how does that affect your percentage?
if there a priority between the cache? or are they independant so both will
try to be satisfied which would result in an OOM?
