Re: [mosquitto-dev] Active mosquitto service prevents reboot on Raspberry Pi
My understanding is that upstart will stop processes by first sending
a SIGTERM (which mosquitto handles by shutting down gracefully) then
if the process is still running after 5 seconds, it calls SIGKILL,
which of course can't be handled.
So I'm a bit surprised that this would happen. The only PI I have easy
access to at the moment is running Jessie on systemd so it's a bit
tricky for me to test. Are there any other diagnostics that you can
