Question about strategy of shutting down ftpd on 6.4.0
A question was asked about the safety of shutting down the ftpd process using SIGTERM and what would happen to the open files that are current undergoing Put/Get operations.
The answer is the same with any client programs in QNX. In this case the ftpd process is acting as a client to the storage device resource manager where the file in question is open for the Put/Get operation. In QNX when a process terminates, any outstanding connections are closed. In this case that means that any open files that ftpd has or is currently operating on will, get closed as the ftpd process terminates.
