Subject Re: Time requirement between shutting down tablet servers?

You are killing loggers, which means that recovery cannot take place with
tablets are moved to the remaining servers.


$ ./bin/accumulo admin stop host:port

This will gracefully stop the tserver and logger on that machine, and flush
the tablets with references to logs on that machine.
