16.6.2. Commands in the Management Client

In addition to the central configuration file, a cluster may also be controlled through a command-line interface available through the management client ndb_mgm. This is the primary administrative interface to a running cluster.

Commands for the event logs are given in Section 16.6.3, “Event Reports Generated in MySQL Cluster”. commands for creating backups and restoring from backup are provided in Section 16.6.5, “On-line Backup of MySQL Cluster”.

The management client has the following basic commands. In the listing that follows, node_id denotes either a database node ID or the keyword ALL, which indicates that the command should be applied to all of the cluster's data nodes.

  • HELP

    Displays information on all available commands.

  • SHOW

    Displays information on the cluster's status.

    Note: In a cluster where multiple management nodes are in use, this command displays information only for data nodes that are actually connected to the current management server.

  • node_id START

    Starts the data node identified by node_id (or all data nodes).

  • node_id STOP

    Stops the data node identified by node_id (or all data nodes).

  • node_id RESTART [-N] [-I]

    Restarts the data node identified by node_id (or all data nodes).

  • node_id STATUS

    Displays status information for the data node identified by node_id (or for all data nodes).


    Enters single-user mode, whereby only the MySQL server identified by the node ID node_id is allowed to access the database.


    Exits single-user mode, allowing all SQL nodes (that is, all running mysqld processes) to access the database.

  • QUIT

    Terminates the management client.


    Shuts down all cluster nodes, except for SQL nodes, and exits.
