Trying to stop java process results in unclean shutdown with EXIT 143 or 130 depending on signal


When i try to stop my processes, they EXIT with 143 or 130 status, depending on signal i send it (SIGTERM/SIGINT/SIGTTIN etc). I would wish for a clean shutdown with EXIT 0.

I’m running druid (from binary package), as a non-privileged user on Ubuntu 12.04.5 LTS

My Java is:

java version “1.7.0_71”

Java™ SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_71-b14)

Java HotSpot™ 64-Bit Server VM (build 24.71-b01, mixed mode)

The command-line to start the process I use is:

$ java -cp /etc/druid/broker:/opt/druid/current/lib/* -server -Xmx4G -Duser.timezone=UTC -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8 -Djava.util.logging.manager=org.apache.logging.log4j.jul.LogManager io.druid.cli.Main server broker

when killing it i get:

INFO [Thread-43] com.metamx.common.lifecycle.Lifecycle - Running shutdown hook

FATAL Unable to register shutdown hook because JVM is shutting down.

I’ve pasted full TRACE loglevel here:

Any pointers in what I might do to get STATUS 0 on my process Exits would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Bjorn, thanks for the detailed information.

Would you mind filing an issue on this matter in github?

This behavior has been around for a long time and the quirky shutdown behavior is definitely annoying.
