I am trying to write an upstart script that checks if my process is running by pinging it's HTTP interface. So far, I just can't get the
post-start clause to work. Here's a simplified version that I've tried:
description "my application" start on runlevel  stop on runlevel [!2345] respawn respawn limit 360 180 setuid myuser setgid mygroup chdir /my/directory exec /bin/sleep 60 post-start script sleep 5 stop exit 1 end script
/etc/init$ sudo start myapp # returns after 5 seconds myapp start/running, process 27477 jrantil@myserver:/etc/init$ ps -ef|grep sleep 107 27477 1 0 16:56 ? 00:00:00 /bin/sleep 60 jrantil 27482 26900 0 16:56 pts/1 00:00:00 grep --color=auto sleep
Could anyone tell me why my application is not shutting down after 5 seconds? As far as I've understood, if I don't call
stop it will simply respawn.
