Subject Re: what will gracefully shut down flume?
Date Mon, 24 Mar 2014 09:08:01 GMT
How are you starting Flume? What platform / environment are you running on? Did you write your
own init scripts or are you using a vendor Hadoop distribution (i.e. Cloudera) or something
else (i.e. directly using Bigtop)? On Linux, if you are writing your own init scripts then
running Flume via nohup might help with the signal handling.

There must be something which made flume shut down, right?  Is it possible to do something
to make flume work again? Like stop some kinds of services or kill some kinds of sessions?

look for anything in your system throwing those. Pretty much any other signal will kill it
