    I am having a process in Process Manager that seems to almost continiously run:

    Owner is: mysql
    Priority is: 0
    CPU is: 10.8 %
    Memory is: 4.4 %

    Command is:
    /usr/sbin/mysqld --basedir=/ --datadir=/var/lib/mysql --user=mysql --log-error=/var/lib/mysql/server.myserver.com.err --open-files-limit=50000 --pid-file=/var/lib/mysql/server.myserver.com.pid --socket=/tmp/mysql.sock

    This goes on for very long times and nothing changes, not even CPU load or memory usage.
    Is this a normal proces or is there something going on?

    That's your MySQL database server, it should run continuously under a default install

    Aha, thanks for clearing that.
    But it is then also not strange that cpu load and memory usage remain exactly the same?

    This is normal. You should see the same behavior when using "top" on the command line.

    Thank you.
