Using and managing a MySQL Cluster requires several specialized programs, which we describe in this chapter. We discuss the purposes of these programs in a MySQL Cluster, how to use the programs, and what startup options are available for each of them.
Information about the program ndb_setup.py (added in MySQL Cluster NDB 7.3.1), used to start the MySQL Cluster Auto-Installer, is also included in this section. You should be aware that Section 18.4.22, “ndb_setup.py — Start browser-based Auto-Installer for MySQL Cluster”, contains information about the command-line client only; for information about using the GUI installer spawned by this program to configure and deploy a MySQL Cluster, see Section 18.2.1, “The MySQL Cluster Auto-Installer”.
For information about using mysqld as a MySQL Cluster process, see Section 18.5.4, “MySQL Server Usage for MySQL Cluster”.
NDB utility, diagnostic, and
example programs are included with the MySQL Cluster distribution.
These include ndb_restore,
ndb_config. These programs are also covered in
The final portion of this section contains tables of options that are common to all the various MySQL Cluster programs.
