Re: slapd refuses to die

I am running openldap 2.1.22 on a redhat 8 box with replication turn on.
sometimes when i tried to stop slapd by doing: kill -HUP <pid>, the slapd
refuses to die. I ended up having to do kill -9. Unfortunately when i
do kill -9, the bdb database sometime gets corrupted in the process.
Any reason why a normal kill -HUP doesn't work consistently? I did
verifed that there are no other clients apps using the slapd before I
tired to kill it. I would like to avoid kill -9 since I have corrupted
the bdb before.
I always do a kill -INT. Note that when you tell slapd to shut down, it
will checkpoint the BDB database. If you don't have checkpointing set in
slapd.conf, and you have had a lot of changes, it may take a while for
slapd to stop. You could also truss the process to see if it is doing
anything or not.
