NAME
       mysqld - the MySQL server

SYNOPSIS
       mysqld [options]

DESCRIPTION
       mysqld, also known as MySQL Server, is the main program that does most of the work in a
       MySQL installation. MySQL Server manages access to the MySQL 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 MySQL 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

       MySQL 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. MySQL 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 MySQL Server command options, system variables, and status
       variables, see Section 5.1, "The MySQL Server". For information about installing MySQL and
       setting up the initial configuration, see Chapter 2, Installing and Upgrading MySQL.
