[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: cygrunsrv-1.20-1
Mon Feb 18 13:42:00 GMT 2008
I have updated cygrunsrv to version 1.20-1.
It introduces two new command line switches and new functionality:
Starting with Windows Vista/Longhorn, the --preshutdown option
allows to terminate the service before the real shutdown takes
place, giving the service up to 3 minutes for its shutdown actions.
Only one of the --preshutdown/--shutdown options is allowed. If you
use --preshutdown on operating systems prior to Vista/Longhorn, it
will be silently converted to --shutdown at service runtime.
This option could be interesting especially for services which
have to do a lot of cleanup action. postgresql might be a good
-z, --shutsig <signal>
Optional signal to send to service application to stop the service
in case of a system shutdown. This is useful if your service
application wants to allow different actions to be taken on a normal
service stop and on system shutdown. Note that the --shutsig option
only has an effect if you use the --preshutdown or --shutdown option.
The default signal on shutdown is the termination signal set with
--termsig, TERM otherwise.
If you have questions or comments, please send them to the Cygwin
mailing list at: email@example.com . I would appreciate
if you would use this mailing list rather than emailing me directly.
This includes ideas and comments about the setup utility or Cygwin
If you want to make a point or ask a question the Cygwin mailing list is
the appropriate place.
