Applying Centos Updates

Hello Experts,

We have a CentOS release 6.2 server that I need to apply some updates. When I run yum update it shows all the packages that have updates

Transaction Summary
==============================================
Install      27 Package(s)
Upgrade     524 Package(s)

Open in new window


My question is... If I proceed to apply this updates will this upgrade the OS Version? or it
will just apply the update for programs?

Note: This server is dedicated only for Mysql and this is the "Slave".  During the update process is recommended to stop all the sync activity on the Mysql?

Yum update apply update for programs and os (packages and kernel in linux terms).

If you want yum to ignore specific mysql -

yum --exclude=mysql\* update
