Usualy this picture means mysql tries to eat more memory than OS can dedicate for mysql. OS begins to hardly use swap memory. Each connection use some amount of memory and from some threshold OS feels lack of memory. There is an article with explanation how mysql uses memory .

How to check settings of your mysql instance:

Another possible explanation: mysql has too small buffers and since some moment mysql has to refresh buffers too often. For 'main' :-) buffer (key_buffer) you can check it if compare Key_read_requests (how much times mysql tried to read index page) and Key_reads (how many times mysql actually read page from disk). Optimal key_read_requests/key_reads must be about 0.01..0.05
(there is explanation how to check these status variables: )
