Description Gavin McCance 2012-05-04 08:32:05 EDT
Description of problem:

Hang in supervisorctl control shell on "stop". Suggest upgrade to supervisor 3.0 (which fixes this, among many new features) as per Fedora; the 2.* source branch does not seem to be available any more.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Name        : supervisor                   Relocations: (not relocatable)
Version     : 2.1                               Vendor: Fedora Project
Release     : 8.el6                         Build Date: Fri 02 Jul 2010 04:14:29 PM CEST

How reproducible:

Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:

cat > /tmp/testit.py << EOF 
#!/usr/bin/python -u
import time

while True:
   print "Hello"

Add to: /etc/supervisord.conf:

  service supervisord start

starts the "testit" program.


lets you control what its doing via the supervisor shell.

Actual results:

Inside the shell:

  stop testit


Expected results:

It should stop the monitored program.

There are some changes in the configuration file between version 2 and 3 but they 
are very well documented here:


i.e I would rather just fix the bug if at all possible.
Comment 2 Steve Traylen 2012-05-09 13:29:18 EDT
There's a scratch build here now of the new version of 


I would also like to move to newer version, just looking into. I have never used the older version, 
its quite old and unmaintained I agree.
Comment 3 Gavin McCance 2012-05-10 17:54:11 EDT

Had a quick go - the packaged /etc/supervisor.conf file looks like the old one. It fails on:

[root@crumple02 etc]# supervisorctl
unix:///var/tmp/supervisor.sock no such file

and doesn't run any configured programs.

Better to provide the default generated by the /usr/bin/echo_supervisord_conf ? (which seems to work fine).

This seems to affect the EL6 package as well.
