I noticed on a production Filr system that the MySQL DB had grown to around 24GB and was using a tremendous amount of resources. I'm wondering if anyone that has started with the DB appliance has tried moving from the appliance to a stand-alone MySQL server? I'm thinking if I maintain the same IP and host name it should be easy. But has anyone tried this?

On a side note, what the heck is in the DB that causes it to get so dang big?
