"mysqld" is MySQL server daemon program which runs quietly in background on your computer system. Invoking "mysqld" will start the MySQL server on your system. Terminating "mysqld" will shutdown the MySQL server. Here is a tutorial example of invoking "mysqld" with the "--console" option:

>cd \mysql\bin
>mysqld --console
... 19:52:54  InnoDB: Started; log sequence number 0 43655
... 19:52:54 [Note] mysqld: ready for connections.
