MySQL Process Shutdown Priority

Recommended Posts

What is the shutdown priority for MySQL's server process on Windows? I setup one of my game servers as a service, but I need to ensure that it has a higher shutdown priority than MySQL, otherwise character data could become lost when the computer is restarted. I have not found any tools that allow me to view the current shutdown priority of a process. I asked in the #mysql channel on Freenode, but no on in there knew the answer.

Because I don't know if the MySQL server is also at that priority. Unlikely, yes, but possible.

I am currently looking into the possibility of having the game server start the MySQL server if it is down. I don't know if the OS will allow me to do this while it is shutting down though...

Edit: I have decided that getting this to work well will take too long, so the server won't be running as a service. I may come back to this at some point in the future.
