Anyway, i have this scenario: my /home is mounted on a nfs server machine. Sometimes, by some reason, this /home is momentary lost. Cfexecd is running on background as a daemon, and it happens to be executed when the nfs is down (os lost, or..). When this occurs, it seems that cfagent hungs up, not terminating.
When i run from command line ps ax | grep cf, i see
3291 ? S 0:00 /var/cfengine/bin/cfagent -Dfrom_cfexecd
and when the situation is bad, many lines like that.
How can i tell the cfagent, or cfexecd, to kill itself, or to finish, when this situation occurs? Is there something like a time-out?
