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.

OpenSolaris 2009.06 - man page for _edata (opensolaris section 3c)

end(3C) 						   Standard C Library Functions 						   end(3C)

NAME
end, _end, etext, _etext, edata, _edata - last locations in program
SYNOPSIS
extern int _etext; extern int _edata; extern int _end;
DESCRIPTION
These names refer neither to routines nor to locations with interesting contents; only their addresses are meaningful. _etext The address of _etext is the first location after the last read-only loadable segment. _edata The address of _edata is the first location after the last read-write loadable segement. _end If the address of _edata is greater than the address of _etext, the address of _end is same as the address of _edata. If the address of _etext is greater than the address of _edata, the address of _end is set to the page boundary after the address pointed to by _etext.
USAGE
When execution begins, the program break (the first location beyond the data) coincides with _end, but the program break can be reset by the brk(2), malloc(3C), and the standard input/output library (see stdio(3C)), functions by the profile (-p) option of cc(1B), and so on. Thus, the current value of the program break should be determined by sbrk ((char *)0). References to end, etext, and edata, without a preceding underscore will be aliased to the associated symbol that begins with the under- score.
