I would like to use fill_status() as it seems to fit my requirement
best. My idea being I pass an empty table structure to fill_status() and
let it fill in all the global status variables. Then return to my daemon
function and simply iterate through the table for what I need.
However, the prototype for fill_status() asks for THD and TABLE_LIST
variables. Being a daemon plugin inside mysql, I'm not sure I have a thd
I can access. I figured I would be able to say something like "self" to
represent my own thread but I don't think that's the same thing.
I've looked through the code a bit for an instantiation example of THD
and TABLE_LIST but to no avail.
Where should I look for this? Or do you have an example of instancing each?
