Defines the policy and priority for the gcomm thread
wsrep_provider_options system variable applies to MariaDB Enterprise Cluster, powered by Galera and to Galera Cluster available with MariaDB Community Server. This page relates specifically to the gcomm.thread_

gcomm.thread_prio option, enables raising the priority of the
gcomm thread to a higher level than it normally uses. This can be useful in situations where Galera Cluster threads do not receive sufficient CPU time due to competition with other MySQL threads. When the thread scheduler for the operating system does not run the Galera threads frequently enough, timeouts can occur and cause the node to drop from the cluster.
The format for the
gcomm.thread_prio option is: <policy>:<priority>. The priority value is an integer. The policy value supports the following options:
otherdesignates the default time-sharing scheduling in Linux. Threads can run until they are blocked by an I/O request or preempted by higher priorities or superior scheduling designations.
fifodesignates first-in first-out scheduling. These threads always immediately preempt any currently running other, batch or idle threads. They can run until they are either blocked by an I/O request or preempted by a FIFO thread of a higher priority.
rrdesignates round-robin scheduling. These threads always preempt any currently running other, batch or idle threads. The scheduler allows these threads to run for a fixed period of a time. If the thread is still running when this time period is exceeded, they are stopped and moved to the end of the list, allowing another round-robin thread of the same priority to run in their place. They can otherwise continue to run until they are blocked by an I/O request or are preempted by threads of a higher priority.

Display Current Value
wsrep_provider_options define optional settings the node passes to the wsrep provider.
To display current
SHOW GLOBAL VARIABLES LIKE 'wsrep_provider_options';
The expected output will display the option and the value. Options with no default value, for example SSL options, will not be displayed in the output.
Set in Configuration File
When changing a setting for a wsrep_
Options are set in the
my.cnf configuration file. Use the
; delimiter to set multiple options.
The configuration file must be updated on each node. A restart to each node is needed for changes to take effect.
Use a quoted string that includes every option where you want to override the default value. Options that are not in the list will reset to their default value.
To set the option in the configuration file:
The gcomm.thread_prio option cannot be set dynamically. It can only be set in the configuration file.
Trying to change a non-dynamic option with
SET results in an error:
