tmp_table_size, what is too large?

micromatikalmicromatikal EntrantInactive User Role Beginner
On this particular DB server we have some very very large tables, and large temp tables being created (many GB in some cases). However I am apprehensive about turning the max_heap_table_size and tmp_table_size up too far... We have a TON of free memory on the system (like 50 GB unused for example) and want many more tables to be created in memory. How far can I safely go with these values?

Here is what it looks like now:

Current max_heap_table_size = 512 M
Current tmp_table_size = 512 M
Of 282433 temp tables, 44% were created on disk
Perhaps you should increase your tmp_table_size and/or max_heap_table_size to reduce the number of disk-based temporary tables
