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.

setnetgrent, endnetgrent, getnetgrent, getnetgrent_r, innetgr - handle network group entries
#include <netdb.h> int setnetgrent(const char *netgroup); void endnetgrent(void); int getnetgrent(char **host, char **user, char **domain); int getnetgrent_r(char **host, char **user, char **domain, char *buf, size_t buflen); int innetgr(const char *netgroup, const char *host, const char *user, const char *domain); Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)): setnetgrent(), endnetgrent(), getnetgrent(), getnetgrent_r(), innetgr(): Since glibc 2.19: _DEFAULT_SOURCE Glibc 2.19 and earlier: _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE
The netgroup is a SunOS invention. A netgroup database is a list of string triples (hostname, username, domainname) or other netgroup names. Any of the elements in a triple can be empty, which means that anything matches. The functions described here allow access to the netgroup databases. The file /etc/nsswitch.conf defines what database is searched. The setnetgrent() call defines the netgroup that will be searched by subsequent getnetgrent() calls. The getnetgrent() function retrieves the next netgroup entry, and returns pointers in host, user, domain. A null pointer means that the corresponding entry matches any string. The pointers are valid only as long as there is no call to other netgroup-related functions. To avoid this problem you can use the GNU function getnetgrent_r() that stores the strings in the supplied buffer. To free all allocated buffers use endnetgrent(). In most cases you want to check only if the triplet (hostname, username, domainname) is a member of a netgroup. The function innetgr() can be used for this without calling the above three functions. Again, a null pointer is a wildcard and matches any string. The function is thread-safe.
These functions return 1 on success and 0 for failure.

For an explanation of the terms used in this section, see attributes(7). +-----------------+---------------+-------------------------+ |Interface | Attribute | Value | +-----------------+---------------+-------------------------+ |setnetgrent(), | Thread safety | MT-Unsafe race:netgrent | |getnetgrent_r(), | | locale | |innetgr() | | | +-----------------+---------------+-------------------------+ |endnetgrent() | Thread safety | MT-Unsafe race:netgrent | +-----------------+---------------+-------------------------+ |getnetgrent() | Thread safety | MT-Unsafe race:netgrent | | | | race:netgrentbuf locale | +-----------------+---------------+-------------------------+ In the above table, netgrent in race:netgrent signifies that if any of the functions setnetgrent(), getnetgrent_r(), innetgr(), getnet- grent(), or endnetgrent() are used in parallel in different threads of a program, then data races could occur.
These functions are not in POSIX.1, but setnetgrent(), endnetgrent(), getnetgrent(), and innetgr() are available on most UNIX systems. getnetgrent_r() is not widely available on other systems.
In the BSD implementation, setnetgrent() returns void.
