Depending on the size of the databases you have in mysql innodb the time it takes mysql to restart can be horribly slow (for very big innodb databases). There are some tricks that can speed this up, but the most effective one that I’ve found and use all the time in similar situations is to pre-flush the dirty pages right before shutdown; this can be done like this:
