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.

FTOK(3) 						   BSD Library Functions Manual 						   FTOK(3)

ftok -- create IPC identifier from path name
Standard C Library (libc, -lc)
#include <sys/types.h> #include <sys/ipc.h> key_t ftok(const char *path, int id);
The ftok() function attempts to create a unique key suitable for use with the msgget(2), semget(2) and shmget(2) functions given the path of an existing file and a user-selectable id. The specified path must specify an existing file that is accessible to the calling process or the call will fail. Also, note that links to files will return the same key, given the same id.
The ftok() function will return -1 if path does not exist or if it cannot be accessed by the calling process.
msgget(2), semget(2), shmget(2)
The ftok() function originates with System V and is typically used by programs that use the System V IPC routines.
Thorsten Lockert <>
The returned key is computed based on the device minor number and inode of the specified path in combination with the lower 8 bits of the given id. Thus it is quite possible for the routine to return duplicate keys.
