Subject [jira] [Commented] (AURORA-1572) SIGTERM is not sent to child processes
Date Wed, 06 Jan 2016 20:37:39 GMT


Stephan Erb commented on AURORA-1572:

I'd say that In general, it is the responsibility of a process that has allocated resources
(or in this case, started child-processes) to also clean-up after itself. So I don't think
the Aurora/Thermos code is at fault here, but rather the application which is not properly
terminating its child processes.

Do you a specific problem that you are trying to solve?

> In terminate_process, SIGTERM is sent to the parent process only. This seems like a deliberate
design choice given that the kill_process does send a SIGKILL to each child process. Is there
a reason why SIGTERM is not also sent the to child processes? 
> For reference, I'm referring to the functions defined in the thermos file.
