InnoDB supports row-level locking. Selected rows can be locked using LOCK IN SHARE MODE or FOR UPDATE. In both cases, a lock is acquired on the rows read by the query, and it will be released when the current transaction is committed.

When LOCK IN SHARE MODE is specified in a SELECT statement, MariaDB will wait until all transactions that have modified the rows are committed. Then, a write lock is acquired. All transactions can read the rows, but if they want to modify them, they have to wait until your transaction is committed.

If autocommit is set to 1 (the default), the LOCK IN SHARE MODE and FOR UPDATE clauses have no effect in InnoDB. For non-transactional storage engines like MyISAM and ARIA, a table level lock will be taken even if autocommit is set to 1.
