The InnoDB Team is looking for your feedback!

Restarting production database servers with gigabytes of memory is difficult. It can lead to cold caches and other operational complexities.

The InnoDB team is looking to make improvements so that restarting MySQL is required as little as possible. Please help them out by answering which configuration settings you are most eager to see made dynamic.

I joined MySQL AB in 2006, left, and am now back at Oracle working on the MySQL team. I've also worked at Percona and InPowered.
