sending break and reboot

One of my server always takes long time to go down and come up. Evidently there is endless dots for each script in rc. But when i sent a break at the console while the system was going down the system went down quickly. the startup was again slow, but i want to know the connection between the "break" and the system going down faster so that i could find the problem.

Thanks

Re: sending break and reboot

I guess the break just by pass all the shut down processes and shutdown the system immediately. That is why the shutting down is faster. I this case, if a database running in the system, it might be corrupted.

Re: sending break and reboot

The only thing I can imagine is that you managed to interrupt the rc process that sequences all the shutdown scripts, thus aborting all of them.

What I generally do, rather than wait, is to manually do my database shutdown with "/sbin/init.d/DB stop", then do the same for any other critical processes, and finally do a "reboot -rq" (or -hq).

reboot -rq may bring it down faster but when it starts up i dont think it would speed things up

"... reboot -rq may bring it down faster ..."

This is totally normal, because you bypass the shutdown scripts.

For startup - inspect the rc.log.

Hope this helps!
