I have a problem with my mySQL server. It consumes 9.7 GB ram. I have only a very limited amount of data on it (13 mb)
I have been searching the internet and seval places a solution like this one Mysql Server 5.6 Mysqld high memory consumption is given. I have tried that. And it still eats 9.7 GB of ram. Even after restart of the computer.
I need to lower the memory usage to have enough memory left for some virtual machines.
Just for the record here is my "my.ini" file
