Supervisor 2.1 shell hangs on "stop"
Last modified: 2017-04-06 06:34:37 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
Steps to Reproduce:
cat > /tmp/testit.py << EOF
Add to: /etc/supervisord.conf:
service supervisord start
starts the "testit" program.
lets you control what its doing via the supervisor shell.
Inside the shell:
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.
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.
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.
Commits for potential solution:
Fedora EPEL 5 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2017-03-31. Fedora EPEL 5
is no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of Fedora
or Fedora EPEL, please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If
you are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the current
release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this bug.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
