mysqld - the MariaDB server


   mysqld [options]


   mysqld, also known as MariaDB Server, is the main program that does
   most of the work in a MariaDB installation. MariaDB Server manages
   access to the MariaDB data directory that contains databases and
   tables. The data directory is also the default location for other
   information such as log files and status files.

   When MariaDB server starts, it listens for network connections from
   client programs and manages access to databases on behalf of those

   The mysqld program has many options that can be specified at startup.
   For a complete list of options, run this command:

       shell> mysqld --verbose --help

   MariaDB Server also has a set of system variables that affect its
   operation as it runs. System variables can be set at server startup,
   and many of them can be changed at runtime to effect dynamic server
   reconfiguration. MariaDB Server also has a set of status variables that
   provide information about its operation. You can monitor these status
   variables to access runtime performance characteristics.

   For a full description of MariaDB Server command options, system
   variables, and status variables, see the MariaDB Knowledge Base.
