mariadb_waitpid is a utility for terminating processes. It runs on Unix-like systems, making use of the kill() system call.

Prior to MariaDB 10.5, the client was called mysql_waitpid. It can still be accessed under this name, via a symlink in Linux, or an alternate binary in Windows.


mariadb-waitpid [options] pid time


mariadb-waitpid sends signal 0 to the process pid and waits up to time seconds for the process to terminate. pid and time must be positive integers.

Returns 0 if the process terminates in time, or does not exist, and 1 otherwise.

Signal 1 is used if the kill() system call cannot handle signal 0
