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.

NAME
flopen -- Reliably open and lock a file
LIBRARY
System Utilities Library (libutil, -lutil)
SYNOPSIS
#include <sys/fcntl.h> #include <libutil.h> int flopen(const char *path, int flags); int flopen(const char *path, int flags, mode_t mode);
DESCRIPTION
The flopen() function opens or creates a file and acquires an exclusive lock on it. It is essentially equivalent with calling open() with the same parameters followed by flock() with an operation argument of LOCK_EX, except that flopen() will attempt to detect and handle races that may occur between opening / creating the file and locking it. Thus, it is well suited for opening lock files, PID files, spool files, mailboxes and other kinds of files which are used for synchronization between processes. If flags includes O_NONBLOCK and the file is already locked, flopen() will fail and set errno to EWOULDBLOCK. As with open(), the additional mode argument is required if flags includes O_CREAT.
RETURN VALUES
If successful, flopen() returns a valid file descriptor. Otherwise, it returns -1, and sets errno as described in flock(2) and open(2).
SEE ALSO
errno(2), flock(2), open(2)
