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.

fdescfs -- file-descriptor file system
fdescfs /dev/fd fdescfs rw 0 0
The file-descriptor file system, or fdescfs, provides access to the per-process file descriptor namespace in the global file system names- pace. The conventional mount point is /dev/fd. The file system's contents appear as a list of numbered files which correspond to the open files of the process reading the directory. The files /dev/fd/0 through /dev/fd/# refer to file descriptors which can be accessed through the file system. If the file descriptor is open and the mode the file is being opened with is a subset of the mode of the existing descriptor, the call: fd = open("/dev/fd/0", mode); and the call: fd = fcntl(0, F_DUPFD, 0); are equivalent. Flags to the open(2) call other than O_RDONLY, O_WRONLY and O_RDWR are ignored. Note: /dev/fd/0, /dev/fd/1 and /dev/fd/2 files are created by default when devfs alone is mounted. fdescfs creates entries for all file descriptors opened by the process.
To mount a fdescfs volume located on /dev/fd: mount -t fdescfs null /dev/fd
devfs(5), mount(8)
The fdescfs file system first appeared in 4.4BSD. The fdescfs manual page first appeared in FreeBSD 2.2.
The fdescfs manual page was written by Mike Pritchard <>, and was based on the manual page written by Jan-Simon Pendry.
