NAME

       mysqld - the MariaDB server

SYNOPSIS

       mysqld [options]

DESCRIPTION

       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 clients.

       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.
