pg_autoctl_stop - Man Page

Name

pg_autoctl stop ā€” pg_autoctl stop

pg_autoctl stop ā€” signal the pg_autoctl service for it to stop

Synopsis

This commands stops the processes needed to run a monitor node or a keeper node, depending on the configuration file that belongs to the --pgdata option or PGDATA environment variable.

usage: pg_autoctl stop  [ --pgdata --fast --immediate ]

--pgdata      path to data directory
--fast        fast shutdown mode for the keeper
--immediate   immediate shutdown mode for the keeper

Description

The pg_autoctl stop commands finds the PID of the running service for the given --pgdata, and if the process is still running, sends a SIGTERM signal to the process.

When pg_autoclt receives a shutdown signal a shutdown sequence is triggered. Depending on the signal received, an operation that has been started (such as a state transition) is either run to completion, stopped as the next opportunity, or stopped immediately even when in the middle of the transition.

Options

--pgdata

Location of the Postgres node being managed locally. Defaults to the environment variable PGDATA. Use --monitor to connect to a monitor from anywhere, rather than the monitor URI used by a local Postgres node managed with pg_autoctl.

--fast

Fast Shutdown mode for pg_autoctl. Sends the SIGINT signal to the running service, which is the same as using C-c on an interactive process running as a foreground shell job.

--immediate

Immediate Shutdown mode for pg_autoctl. Sends the SIGQUIT signal to the running service.

Environment

PGDATA

Postgres directory location. Can be used instead of the --pgdata option.

PG_AUTOCTL_MONITOR

Postgres URI to connect to the monitor node, can be used instead of the --monitor option.

XDG_CONFIG_HOME

The pg_autoctl command stores its configuration files in the standard place XDG_CONFIG_HOME. See the XDG Base Directory Specification.

XDG_DATA_HOME

The pg_autoctl command stores its internal states files in the standard place XDG_DATA_HOME, which defaults to ~/.local/share. See the XDG Base Directory Specification.
