My server has been running really slow for the past few days. I decided to do a ps aux command through SSH to examine the processes. Among them I found the following (website domain has been changed):
mysql 2920 56.3 6.0 924548 496056 ? Sl Oct10 1034:02 /usr/libexec/m
ysqld --basedir=/usr --datadir=/var/lib/mysql --user=mysql --log-error=/var/lib/
mysql/example.com.err --pid-file=/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.pid --socket=/var/lib/
Can anyone tell me what this mysqld command is supposed to be doing?
