http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/server-status-variables.html mentions tmp_table_size:


The number of in-memory temporary tables created automatically by the server while executing statements. If Created_tmp_disk_tables is large, you may want to increase the tmp_table_size value to cause temporary tables to be memory-based instead of disk-based. "

but it is nowhere described. It was expected to be described here:

How to repeat:
open http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/server-status-variables.html, search tmp_table_size

Suggested fix:
please add a description of tmp_table_size,for example in http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/set-option.html

Thank you for the report.

But this option has documented already at http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/server-system-variables.html#optvar_tmp_table_size

Also see http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/mysqld-option-tables.html as well

Whoops...thank you sveta, I guess I need to have my eyes checked.
