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.

Hi Chip

I think your problem would be solved by downloading the FREE (yupp, free) version of Solaris from www.sun.com in the software section I beleive. (It is compatible with a PC.) This would be the best solution to your problem. I'm rather suprised that no one has answered you about this earlier.... Well I guess they didn't know about this. If you have a slower form of connection however (yeah right... a company with a low connection. hahaha) then you can order the CDs that you will need for a modest amount.

I hope this little info has helped you on a little on the road to become a better admin. Or at least enlightened you in some way.

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

NAME
sysinfo - returns information on overall system statistics
SYNOPSIS
#include <sys/sysinfo.h> int sysinfo(struct sysinfo *info);
DESCRIPTION
Until Linux 2.3.16, sysinfo() used to return information in the following structure: struct sysinfo { long uptime; /* Seconds since boot */ unsigned long loads[3]; /* 1, 5, and 15 minute load averages */ unsigned long totalram; /* Total usable main memory size */ unsigned long freeram; /* Available memory size */ unsigned long sharedram; /* Amount of shared memory */ unsigned long bufferram; /* Memory used by buffers */ unsigned long totalswap; /* Total swap space size */ unsigned long freeswap; /* swap space still available */ unsigned short procs; /* Number of current processes */ char _f[22]; /* Pads structure to 64 bytes */ }; and the sizes were given in bytes. Since Linux 2.3.23 (i386), 2.3.48 (all architectures) the structure is: struct sysinfo { long uptime; /* Seconds since boot */ unsigned long loads[3]; /* 1, 5, and 15 minute load averages */ unsigned long totalram; /* Total usable main memory size */ unsigned long freeram; /* Available memory size */ unsigned long sharedram; /* Amount of shared memory */ unsigned long bufferram; /* Memory used by buffers */ unsigned long totalswap; /* Total swap space size */ unsigned long freeswap; /* swap space still available */ unsigned short procs; /* Number of current processes */ unsigned long totalhigh; /* Total high memory size */ unsigned long freehigh; /* Available high memory size */ unsigned int mem_unit; /* Memory unit size in bytes */ char _f[20-2*sizeof(long)-sizeof(int)]; /* Padding for libc5 */ }; and the sizes are given as multiples of mem_unit bytes. sysinfo() provides a simple way of getting overall system statistics. This is more portable than reading /dev/kmem.
RETURN VALUE
On success, zero is returned. On error, -1 is returned, and errno is set appropriately.
ERRORS
EFAULT pointer to struct sysinfo is invalid
CONFORMING TO
This function is Linux-specific, and should not be used in programs intended to be portable. The Linux kernel has a sysinfo() system call since 0.98.pl6. Linux libc contains a sysinfo() routine since 5.3.5, and glibc has one since 1.90.
