Well maybe I am missing something here about MEMORY tables but it I have been having errors specifying that "cannot connect to MySQL" and specifically when trying to read from my MEMORY table. I feel this error has something to do with the MEMORY tables but not sure. Why do they require so much memory (no pun intended) right off the bat.

Here are the values before my insert:

---- DATA: 0bytes INDEX: 0bytes TOTAL: 0bytes ROWS: 0 ROW-LENGTH: 11 ROW-SIZE: 0

And after a single insert:

---- DATA: 719,016bytes INDEX: 958,688bytes TOTAL: 1,638KB ROWS: 1 ROW-LENGTH: 11 ROW-SIZE: 1,638.4KB

Wow thats a lot of row size for a puny one row INSERT. Does anyone know what all this means. Is this a bug? Is this how its supposed to work?

I use REPLACE to re-use rows for each user record in the table so rarely have more than a dozen records in it.

My table is simple:

CREATE TABLE `sys_auth` (
`co_id` smallint(5) unsigned NOT NULL default '0',
`usernumber` int(10) unsigned NOT NULL default '0',
`last_timestamp` int(10) unsigned default NULL,
PRIMARY KEY (`usernumber`),
KEY `co_id` (`co_id`)

I use it to store each users ID company ID and last timestamp when they sign into my app and each time they POST a new page.
