This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Database Setup For MySQL
Near the bottom of step 3 here: https://confluence.atlassian.com/doc/database-setup-for-mysql-128747.html#DatabaseSetupForMySQL-Step3.ConfigureMySQLServer
it is noted that, "NB: This should be set to at least 2G for MySQL 5.6 and above."
What does the abbreviation NB stand for in this case?
I guess I don't read enough documentation. My point is that myself and 4 other intelligent professionals scratched our heads about the meaning of NB for longer than I care to admit. The use of an archaic notation, while quaint, adds nothing to the clarity and would be much improved if the documentation simply omitted the notation, or replaced it with the easy-to-understand english language phrase "Please Note:".
I am not sure that NB is either non-standard or archaic. What other abbreviation would one use? It's also not uncommon... my office cleaning ladies knew what it meant. Perhaps it's an English thing. =)
Ooops.. "etc" is yet another Latin abbreviation.
By the way... typing "NB" into Wikipedia search will lead you to the definition.
There's a 100 percent chance that I am now off-topic Re innodb_log_file_size. Yikes.. another two Latin abbreviations.
