Description:
One wordpress site with ~100.000 posts uses this plugin:

https://github.com/INN/Google-Analytics-Popular-Posts

The problem is that the MySQL memory usage keeps growing and after 1 or 2 days it uses more than 30-40GB of combined RAM + SWAP.

If I disable the plugin and restart MySQL then memory usage stays between 4-5GB which is within the limits defined by my.cnf

How to repeat:
If a MySQL developer needs a dump of the database let me know.

Hi,

Thank you for your bug report.

If I am not wrong, the plugin that makes you problems is not released by us.

If that is a case, please report this bug to the authors of that plugin.

We do not maintain nor check third-party plugins.
