The units for this pool are in memory pages, which are blocks of 2048 bytes. The default size is large enough to accommodate over 100 tables marked for incremental transfer, all transferring simultaneously.

If your installation does not include tables marked for incremental transfer, and does not use the transfer table command, you may set the size of this memory pool to zero to reclaim this memory.
