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.

SET_TID_ADDRESS(2)					     Linux Programmer's Manual						SET_TID_ADDRESS(2)

NAME
set_tid_address - set pointer to thread ID
SYNOPSIS
#include <linux/unistd.h> long set_tid_address(int *tidptr); Note: There is no glibc wrapper for this system call; see NOTES.
DESCRIPTION
For each thread, the kernel maintains two attributes (addresses) called set_child_tid and clear_child_tid. These two attributes contain the value NULL by default. set_child_tid If a thread is started using clone(2) with the CLONE_CHILD_SETTID flag, set_child_tid is set to the value passed in the ctid argu- ment of that system call. When set_child_tid is set, the very first thing the new thread does is to write its thread ID at this address. clear_child_tid If a thread is started using clone(2) with the CLONE_CHILD_CLEARTID flag, clear_child_tid is set to the value passed in the ctid argument of that system call. The system call set_tid_address() sets the clear_child_tid value for the calling thread to tidptr. When a thread whose clear_child_tid is not NULL terminates, then, if the thread is sharing memory with other threads, then 0 is written at the address specified in clear_child_tid and the kernel performs the following operation: futex(clear_child_tid, FUTEX_WAKE, 1, NULL, NULL, 0); The effect of this operation is to wake a single thread that is performing a futex wait on the memory location. Errors from the futex wake operation are ignored.
RETURN VALUE
set_tid_address() always returns the caller's thread ID.
ERRORS
set_tid_address() always succeeds.
VERSIONS
This call is present since Linux 2.5.48. Details as given here are valid since Linux 2.5.49.
CONFORMING TO
This system call is Linux-specific.
NOTES
Glibc does not provide a wrapper for this system call; call it using syscall(2).
