Shutting Down Tigase

Although Tigase XMPP Server can be terminated by ending the process, it is preferred and recommended to use it’s own shutdown scripts instead. Not only does this allow for a proper purge of Tigase form the system, but allows for all shutdown functions to operate, such as amending logs and completing statistics. To trigger a shutdown of Tigase server, the following command can be used from the tigase directory:

./scripts/ stop

You may specify the config file if you want, but it will make no differences

This will:

  • Begin shutdown thread
  • Stop accepting new connections
  • Close all current connections
  • Collect runtime statistics
  • Write statistics to log
  • Dump full stacktrace to a file
  • Run GC and clear from memory
