I have recently started on a PoC project wherein we are developing a small web app. The initial setup is done on a micro instance from AWS. We are on the rails+mysql stack.
After installing/running MySQL, I see that about 500+ MB RAM has been consumed already; leaving quite less for rest of the systems (micro instances have barely 620 MB RAM).
Our app is fairly simple at this stage. Can I do something to reduce the memory consumed by the MySQL server?
Appreciate the help.
