set priority of mysqlDaemon
Posted on 2010-08-19
Can anyone tell me how to increase the assigned priority to mysqld.exe in a windows system.
I am trying to import and work with a huge huge data set . Each row has only about 5 or 20 columns. The number of rows is huge in millions. The mysqld is using only 25% of CPU on a windows XP machine and returns results after an hour. I am not using a server just a normal desktop or laptop. I seem to able to increase the priority of mysql.exe but that of mysqld.exe because it is owned by the system? I would like to set it at real time and get back results much faster
thanks for the help
