In the Solaris Service XML
I am using a kill to signal a graceful shutdown
<exec_method type="method" name="stop" exec=":kill" timeout_seconds="60" />
This works great, except for the fact that it also kills the child processes, which mostly just die after a SIGTERM. Any of these will work
- Get the PID so I can use
exec="kill -SIGUSR1 $PID"
- Prevent SIGTERM from being sent to the children. (or at least not the grandchildren)
- Use some other signal
I would prefer not to set up a separate script that has to go figure out the pid. I will do this if I have to. I would prefer to get it from an environment variable, or use a SMF built in command.
