I am a highly motivated, results-driven IT professional with 10 years experience, a systems engineer who enjoys working on large-scale systems and challenging problems. I have experience with large number of servers (10.000+) connected via WAN and LAN, which makes it possible for cloud providers to deliver reliable services to customers

My current role is: systems engineer of the team which runs the websites.

On the top of usual systems engineering tasks, I like to develop softwares, my main language is Ruby (and I use Ruby on Rails of course :) ) but I can read and understand (and fix) Perl and Python, however it is not my favorite. I started to learn Erlang recently, which helps me understand the challenges what software developers face with distributed systems.

Yeah it is possible to kill it with SIGTERM, it is just a bug in signal handling.

Thank you sir. I opened a new bug report myself as well. I am just wondering how is it possible that those folks commenting on this think it is not a bug...

So you say reading a database is uninterruptible, right. My only question would be in this case, how is it possible to terminate the program with signal 15.

How is executing "yum list" database-oriented?

Well if it was working for 30 years in applications like find, grep, cat, etc. your explanation is incorrect. This is just a way of programming which is not desired.

Dennis, this is not time related, I can repeat it wo/ time same story. It seems it is a yum bug.

Hey, I guess kill -9 is not really a viable solution just to interrupt the running. (sockets left open, temporary files remaining etc.)
