mariadb RAM usage

When you bundle your app with mysql or mariadb, you don't want mysql or mariadb to devour all your RAM, especially if the database is installed on a desktop operating system. I haven't recently tried out mysql or mariadb, but I was wondering about the minimum memory required on windows. I sent a question to mysql and they told me it only requires 1 MB RAM minimum. At that stage they still supported windows 2000 and windows xp, which isn't supported any more. I remember installing mysql on windows xp and you could configure it through a wizard. You could either set it to dedicated server, shared server or developer install. I suppose developer install will use the least amount of RAM. How much RAM would mariadb use with a developer install if you had to install it on windows vista/7/8/8.1? Does it matter which engine you are using? XtraDB?




Yes, MariaDB only needs few MB of memory. It shouldn't be a issue on a desktop system. Yes, if you use XtraDB it'll need memory for its buffers too. Every engine needs memory, so you'd better disable all engines that you don't need.
