Subject Re: ExecuteStreamCommand Zombie

The fact that the processor does not detect the dead process that was initiated by it does
appear to be a bug. Would you mind raising JIRA -
so we can take a look.

Hi Nifi lovers,

I have just seen this situation for the first time. I run a .sh script using ExecuteStreamCommand
which usually takes a few minutes. Today, I noticed that the resulting flow had not produced
anything for almost a day. Then I checked on my Linux box and saw that the .sh script had
been running for almost a day. Something must have been wrong here, so killed the process
from the command line. However, the Nifi processor will not stop. I eventually copied and
replaced the components of the flow and all is working again, but the Zombie still won’t
die in Nifi. I am sure that if I restart the Nifi process, all will be resolved, but thought
that you may wish to see this screenshot, and consider if ExecuteStreamCommand could detect
the process being killed and then stop running. Here is an image of a portion of the flow
– on the left the zombie, and on the right, the copy-pasted components working fine.
