Subject force stop not working under linux
Date Sat, 12 Jul 2008 04:41:56 GMT


I am using the latest tomcat55 with Centos. I start tomcat from a console,
but when I stop it using stop, the process does not stop
completely.  If I do a ps-ef | grep tomcat, I ge:

buzzterrier 30975     1  0 20:58 ?        00:00:05
-Djava.endorsed.dirs=/opt/tomcat5/common/endorsed -classpath
-Dcatalina.base=/opt/tomcat5 -Dcatalina.home=/opt/tomcat5 org.apache.catalina.startup.Bootstrap

 I tried the stop -force but that told me that it could not find
the CATALINA_PID. I finally figured out that if I set the path to the pid
file in, that it would create it on the fly. However, the pid in
the $CATALINA_PID file does not match the pid that gets orphaned. So even
though tomcat successfully kills that pid, it does not solve the problem. 
Anyone have any ideas?
