It will make all the difference on a box with 16GB. On a 32bit
machine, you can use a PAE enabled kernel to allow the operating
system to address all the memory, but you're still stuck with a 4GB
per-process limit, which means if this will be a dedicated MySQL
server, you're wasting 12GB of memory.
Just curious, how big of a difference (indeed, what difference) does
Why wouldn't Linux use that 12GB for applications and (more
importantly) as a really big read cache?
