Subject [jira] [Created] (AMQ-5733) kill -9 always results in failure signal
Date Mon, 20 Apr 2015 15:12:58 GMT
James Green created AMQ-5733:

             Summary: kill -9 always results in failure signal
                 Key: AMQ-5733
             Project: ActiveMQ
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Distribution
    Affects Versions: 5.11.1
            Reporter: James Green

Using I am trying to distribute upgrades to our fleet.
This results in failure each time.

Looking into the matter the activemq script tries to stop the broker via JMX. This is not
configured, so fails.

It falls back to issuing "kill -9 <PID>" then immediately exits with code 1. This code
1 causes the packaging script to bail and thus we end up with a mess.

A possible solution is to return the "kill" command's own result. This doesn't necessarily
reflect whether "kill" succeeded in terminating the PID however.

A second possible solution is to detect the presence of 'start-stop-daemon' and use this in
preference. Narrows down the cases in which it does not work at least.

I am of the opinion that a script aiming of cross-platform compatibility is probably never
going to work completely so detecting and making use of per-system tooling is probably best
long term, meantime would returning "kill's" exit code help?
