I’ve created a 2gb and 4gb managed database for testing, both on mysql 8.0.17 The 2gb had a default innodb_buffer_pool_size of 128 mb The 4gd had a default innodb_buffer_pool_size of 1536 mb
Both seem a bit on the low end to me, especially on the 2gb instance. On both servers, the setting “innodb_dedicated_server” was set to OFF, which when set to ON would autoscale the buffer pool size and the log file size based on system available memory.
I’d love to get a better understanding of the chosen default settings
