Pretty new to MySQL. I'm trying to help on a small DB. They need to go from ISAM to InnoDB as they wish to get to encryption. Before I was trying to help, they did convert a table or more to InnoDB and they had terrible performance issues and had to roll back. I do know they did not configure any other settings. While one can quickly find innodb_buffer_pool_size, innodb_buffer_pool_instances and then that those should be multiple, I think, of the innodb_buffer_pool_chunk_sizeā€¦ there are many settings with unclear direction on how one would really know how to set them.

Anyway - while 80% of the server memory is 3.2GB as this test server has 4 GB memory. is this innodb_buffer_pool_size = 3200000000 ? I've seen some reprensentation multiplying by 1024*1024 too. Currently, though, the chunk size and pool size are the default of 8388608. I believe both must change. And how many instances ? If a GB a piece, it seems like 3 or 4 ?

How did you resolve your questions and do you have any suggestions ? I would really love the ability to verbally talk through settings for real scenarios :-) Anybody ?
