Typically after MySQL is started, the applications are then
started. The one situation I’ve run into is when recovery
is being done, which may take some time - the applications will fail to connect and eventually give up & fail to start.
Is there an option to make mysqld (or mysqld_safe script) block, that is not return, until recovery is complete?
Is there a way to tell via the mysql client or utilities
that recovery is in progress?
I’d hate to grep thru the .err file and look for a certain string… There must be a better way!
