Hello!

I updated my nxlog server to 4.6.4640, and today during the day I saw a new for me error in log file:

2020-03-02 18:03:01 WARNING nxlog received a termination request signal, exiting...
2020-03-02 18:03:11 ERROR failed to stop module in, module is busy

2020-03-02 18:04:09 ERROR timed out waiting for threads to exit
2020-03-02 18:04:19 ERROR failed to shutdown module in, module is busy

And nxlog server was down until I restarted it. This situation is repeated several times per hour.

Please help. Thaks a lot!

Hatula,

There is something in one of your input modules preventing it from stopping, probably an open file.
You can always kill the process using the PID in the error message.
