Problem Starting mysqld_multi As A Non Root User On Linux
Last updated on FEBRUARY 06, 2017
Applies to:MySQL Server - Version 5.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Using mysqld_multi to start the mysql instance as a non root OS user(even with sudo) ends up starting multiple(2) threads for each mysql instance, whereas starting the instance as root OS user behavior is fine. Either sudo or doing switch user on a linux machine doesn't work.
