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.

NAME
nohup - run a command immune to hangups
SYNOPSIS
/usr/bin/nohup command [argument...] /usr/bin/nohup -p [-Fa] pid [pid...] /usr/bin/nohup -g [-Fa] gpid [gpid...] /usr/xpg4/bin/nohup command [argument...]
DESCRIPTION
The nohup utility invokes the named command with the arguments supplied. When the command is invoked, nohup arranges for the SIGHUP signal to be ignored by the process. When invoked with the -p or -g flags, nohup arranges for processes already running as identified by a list of process IDs or a list of process group IDs to become immune to hangups. The nohup utility can be used when it is known that command will take a long time to run and the user wants to log out of the terminal. When a shell exits, the system sends its children SIGHUP signals, which by default cause them to be killed. All stopped, running, and back- ground jobs will ignore SIGHUP and continue running, if their invocation is preceded by the nohup command or if the process programmati- cally has chosen to ignore SIGHUP. /usr/bin/nohup Processes run by /usr/bin/nohup are immune to SIGHUP (hangup) and SIGQUIT (quit) signals. /usr/bin/nohup -p [-Fa] Processes specified by ID are made immune to SIGHUP and SIGQUIT, and all output to the controlling terminal is redirected to nohup.out. If -F is specified, nohup will force control of each process. If -a is specified, nohup will change the signal disposition of SIGHUP and SIGQUIT even if the process has installed a handler for either signal. /usr/bin/nohup -g [-Fa] Every process in the same process group as the processes specified by ID are made immune to SIGHUP and SIGQUIT, and all output to the controlling terminal is redirected to nohup.out. If -F is specified, nohup will force control of each process. If -a is specified, nohup will change the signal disposition of SIGHUP and SIGQUIT even if the process has installed a handler for either signal. /usr/xpg4/bin/nohup Processes run by /usr/xpg4/bin/nohup are immune to SIGHUP. The nohup utility does not arrange to make processes immune to a SIGTERM (terminate) signal, so unless they arrange to be immune to SIGTERM or the shell makes them immune to SIGTERM, they will receive it. If nohup.out is not writable in the current directory, output is redirected to $HOME/nohup.out. If a file is created, the file will have read and write permission (600, see chmod(1)). If the standard error is a terminal, it is redirected to the standard output, oth- erwise it is not redirected. The priority of the process run by nohup is not altered.
OPTIONS
The following options are supported: -a Always changes the signal disposition of target processes. This option is valid only when specified with -p or -g. -F Force. Grabs the target processes even if another process has control. This option is valid only when specified with -p or -g. -g Operates on a list of process groups. This option is not valid with -p. -p Operates on a list of processes. This option is not valid with -g.
OPERANDS
The following operands are supported: pid A decimal process ID to be manipulated by nohup -p. pgid A decimal process group ID to be manipulated by nohup -g. command The name of a command that is to be invoked. If the command operand names any of the special shell_builtins(1) utilities, the results are undefined. argument Any string to be supplied as an argument when invoking the command operand.
EXAMPLES
Example 1: Applying nohup to pipelines or command lists It is frequently desirable to apply nohup to pipelines or lists of commands. This can be done only by placing pipelines and command lists in a single file, called a shell script. One can then issue: example$ nohup sh file and the nohup applies to everything in file. If the shell script file is to be executed often, then the need to type sh can be eliminated by giving file execute permission. Add an ampersand and the contents of file are run in the background with interrupts also ignored (see sh(1)): example$ nohup file & Example 2: Applying nohup -p to a process example$ long_running_command & example$ nohup -p `pgrep long_running_command` Example 3: Applying nohup -g to a process group example$ make & example$ ps -o sid -p $$ SID 81079 example$ nohup -g `pgrep -s 81079 make`
ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
See environ(5) for descriptions of the following environment variables that affect the execution of nohup: LANG, LC_ALL, LC_CTYPE, LC_MES- SAGES, PATH, NLSPATH, and PATH. HOME Determine the path name of the user's home directory: if the output file nohup.out cannot be created in the current directory, the nohup command will use the directory named by HOME to create the file.
EXIT STATUS
The following exit values are returned: 126 command was found but could not be invoked. 127 An error occurred in nohup, or command could not be found Otherwise, the exit values of nohup will be those of the command operand.
FILES
nohup.out The output file of the nohup execution if standard output is a terminal and if the current directory is writable. $HOME/nohup.out The output file of the nohup execution if standard output is a terminal and if the current directory is not writable.

WARNINGS
If you are running the Korn shell (ksh(1)) as your login shell, and have nohup'ed jobs running when you attempt to log out, you will be warned with the message: You have jobs running. You will then need to log out a second time to actually log out. However, your background jobs will continue to run.
NOTES
The C-shell (csh(1)) has a built-in command nohup that provides immunity from SIGHUP, but does not redirect output to nohup.out. Commands executed with `&' are automatically immune to HUP signals while in the background. nohup does not recognize command sequences. In the case of the following command, example$ nohup command1; command2 the nohup utility applies only to command1. The command, example$ nohup (command1; command2) is syntactically incorrect.
