If you issue a query using the mysql client
program and receive an error like the following one, it means
that mysql does not have enough memory to
store the entire query result:
mysql: Out of memory at line 42, 'malloc.c'
mysql: needed 8136 byte (8k), memory in use: 12481367 bytes (12189k)
ERROR 2008: MySQL client ran out of memory
To remedy the problem, first check whether your query is
correct. Is it reasonable that it should return so many rows? If
not, correct the query and try again. Otherwise, you can invoke
mysql with the
option. This causes it to use the
mysql_use_result() C API function to retrieve
the result set, which places less of a load on the client (but
more on the server).
