17.4 MySQL Cluster Programs

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.

These programs include the MySQL Cluster data, management, and SQL node processes (ndbd, ndb_mgmd, and mysqld) and the management client (ndb_mgm).

For information about using mysqld as a MySQL Cluster process, see Section 17.5.4, “MySQL Server Usage for MySQL Cluster”.

Other NDB utility, diagnostic, and example programs are included with the MySQL Cluster distribution. These include ndb_restore, ndb_show_tables, and ndb_config. These programs are also covered in this section.

The final portion of this section contains tables of options that are common to all the various MySQL Cluster programs.
