Description Pete Zaitcev 2012-12-10 17:15:14 EST
Description of problem:

"service openstack-swift-proxy reload" does nothing

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


Additional info:


It should invoke swift-init all reload or something. Failing that,
just remove the clause and let the script error out.

Removed reload from init scripts

I removed reload from every init script in order to keep consistency between them. It could be added again for scripts that we do have something to execute in that clause.
Comment 4 Attila Fazekas 2013-02-01 10:02:44 EST
swift-init -h
reload: graceful shutdown then restart on supporting servers
 -g, --graceful        send SIGHUP to supporting servers

Our initscript using the SIGTERM which means stopping services without letting the workers to finish serving the in-progress requests.

So the reload should use -1 SIGHUP instead of SIGTERM and it is a big difference.
Comment 5 Pete Zaitcev 2013-02-01 12:41:54 EST
This is exactly why Flavio's approach is correct: don't fool people into
thinking that our scripted reload does it correctly. They can use swift-init
to do it.
