Subject Re: how to keep storm running when console ends
Date Fri, 04 Aug 2017 13:39:55 GMT
You probably want to look into using something like daemon tools to monitor the processes. 
nohup works, but it is not really a good solution.  Storm is fail fast.  If we hit any exception
that we don't know that we can recover from the process will exit on the assumption that it
will be relaunched and we can recover from the state we have written to disk/zookeeper. 
Having a tool that will monitor and relaunch storm is the best way to keep it up and running.

Try adding nohup at the beginning of each of those commands.  Nohup prevents a process from
terminating when it's parent shell is closed.

Storm docs recommend to use daemontools or monit which provides error recovery and etc.. 
I use linux "nohup" or "screen" command for simplicity.

 this seems silly but I have not figured out how to keep nimbus, supervisor running after
console session ends. zookeeper survives but supervisor and nimbus shut down when the console
session ends.
I have storm 1.0.2 installed under /opt/storm and starting up as:/opt/storm/apache*/bin/storm
nimbus&/opt/storm/apache*/bin/storm supervisor&
/opt/storm/apache*/bin/storm ui&
/opt/storm/apache*/bin/storm drpc&

I know I can add a while loop to keep the console active but there has to be a better way
