----------------------------------------

             Summary: hadoop-daemon.sh and yarn-daemon.sh can be misleading on stop
                 Key: HADOOP-8353
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8353
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: scripts
    Affects Versions: 0.23.1
            Reporter: Roman Shaposhnik
            Assignee: Roman Shaposhnik
             Fix For: 2.0.0


The way that stop actions is implemented is a simple SIGTERM sent to the JVM. There's a time
delay between when the action is called and when the process actually exists. This can be
misleading to the callers of the *-daemon.sh scripts since they expect stop action to return
when process is actually stopped.

I suggest we augment the stop action with a time-delay check for the process status and a
SIGKILL once the delay has expired.

I understand that sending SIGKILL is a measure of last resort and is generally frowned upon
among init.d script writers, but the excuse we have for Hadoop is that it is engineered to
be a fault tolerant system and thus there's not danger of putting system into an incontinent
state by a violent SIGKILL. Of course, the time delay will be long enough to make SIGKILL
event a rare condition.

Finally, there's always an option of an exponential back-off type of solution if we decide
that SIGKILL timeout is short.
