The need to have multiple instances of MySQL (the well-known mysqld process) running in the same server concurrently in a transparent way, instead of having them executed in separate containers/virtual machines, is not very common.

Is your MySQL Server Loaded ?

So you’re running the benchmark/stress test – how do you tell if MySQL server is really loaded ?
