Chef client will not stop


#1

Hi,

I am using chef-client on ubuntu 12.04

I can not stop it and using runit. I try sv kill chef-client in it stops
then comes back up again.

Is there an issue will chef-client? I have never had this problem using
runit. only with chef-client

sv kill chef-client/
sv status chef-client/
run: chef-client/: (pid 9873) 4s; run: log: (pid 1248) 454910s

sv kill just sends a signal to process, and runsv will autorestart it.
Use sv down or sv stop if you want the process to stay down.

sv kill is harmful in general, as it will send SIGKILL (equivalent of
kill -9), not giving a child process a chance to clean up.
