Today (Saturday) We will make some minor tuning adjustments to MySQL.

You may experience 2 up to 10 seconds "glitch time" when we restart MySQL. We expect to make these adjustments around 1AM Eastern Daylight Saving Time (EDT) US.

ALARM(3)						   BSD Library Functions Manual 						  ALARM(3)

NAME
alarm -- set signal timer alarm
LIBRARY
Standard C Library (libc, -lc)
SYNOPSIS
#include <unistd.h> unsigned int alarm(unsigned int seconds);
DESCRIPTION
This interface is made obsolete by setitimer(2). The alarm() function sets a timer to deliver the signal SIGALRM to the calling process after the specified number of seconds. If an alarm has already been set with alarm() but has not been delivered, another call to alarm() will supersede the prior call. The request alarm(0) voids the current alarm and the signal SIGALRM will not be delivered. Due to setitimer(2) restriction the maximum number of seconds allowed is 100000000.
RETURN VALUES
The return value of alarm() is the amount of time left on the timer from a previous call to alarm(). If no alarm is currently set, the return value is 0.
