Subject Re: Ignite.close(), G.stop(name, true). Change flag cancel to false
Date Wed, 09 Aug 2017 21:25:25 GMT
I’m totally for the replacement of ‘crashed’ with ‘stopped’. 

As for the waiting of the checkpointing completion I would NOT do it the default behavior
and would rather check the ‘cancel’ flag to make a decision. If the ‘cancel’ is ‘true’
(which is default) then we’re not going to wait for the completion and should print a message
that   ‘cancel’ has to be set to ‘false’ explicitly if the user prefers to wait while
the checkpoint is over before shutting down a node.
