Some customer have concern about MySQL running in safe mode.
Broadcom API Gateway 9.x Appliance
As shown in below screenshot, there should be two instance of mysql and running, mysqld and mysqld_safe.
mysqld is the server binary and mysqld_safe is a "launcher" script for mysqld.
This is perfectly normal and is the way MySQL should run in Linux/Unix system, in fact mysqld_safe is the recommended way to start a mysqld server on Unix/linux. mysqld_safe adds some safety features such as restarting the server when an error occurs and logging runtime information to an error log.
It is expected and is running as per Oracle design.
