mariadb runs at lowest priority (nice -n 19)



I just noticed that all our MariaDB 5.2 servers show the same:

$ ps -eo ni,comm |grep mysql

  9 mysqld_safe
 19 mysql_isam_spac <defunct>
 19 mysqld

While servers with Oracle MySQL are at nice -n 0

I tried setting


in /usr/bin/mysqld_safe but with no effect. Is there a reason to run
MariaDB at the lowest possible priority and is there a way to change
