Subject [jira] [Commented] (NIFI-929) Ability to generate a 'true' pid file
Date Fri, 23 Oct 2015 13:01:27 GMT


Mark Payne commented on NIFI-929:

[~vs186031] - agreed. Both are responsible solutions. I would certainly opt for A) though.
I think in either case, there will still be a "pid" file and a "status" file. A) keeps backward
compatibility and in addition means that it's easier to obtain all of the values that we care
about by simply reading a single file. This way, the "status file" can be used by the bootstrap
and the .pid file is simply written out as a "useful tool" for other processes, such as Ambari.

> The nifi pid file does not seem to be a true pid file (it has other info as well). 
> For integration with monitoring tools like Ambari it would be nice to have a true pid
file (containing only the pid) created as well (in line with other Hadoop components). This
is coming from the Ambari service I put together: I had to parse out the pid from Nifi pidfile
and maintain another one
