kill -TERM Spring Boot应用

how to shutdown spring boot app gracefully


kill -INT $pid sends the “interrupt” signal to the process with process ID pid.
kill -9 $pid sends the “kill” signal which cannot be caught or ignored.

kill -INT $pid is the same as kill -2 $pid.
kill -9 $pid is the same as kill -KILL $pid

Table Signals Available Under Solaris

Signal Number Description
SIGHUP 1 Hangup. Usually means that the controlling terminal has been disconnected.
SIGINT 2 Interrupt. The user can generate this signal by pressing Ctrl+C or Delete.
SIGQUIT 3 Quits the process and produces a core dump.
SIGILL 4 Illegal instruction.
SIGTRAP 5 Trace or breakpoint trap.
SIGABRT 6 Abort.
SIGEMT 7 Emulation trap.
SIGFPE 8 Arithmetic exception. Informs a process of a floating-point error.
SIGKILL 9 Killed. Forces the process to terminate. This is a sure kill.
SIGBUS 10 Bus error.
SIGSEGV 11 Segmentation fault.
SIGSYS 12 Bad system call.
SIGPIPE 13 Broken pipe.
SIGALRM 14 Alarm clock.
SIGTERM 15 Terminated. A gentle kill that gives processes a chance to clean up.
SIGUSR1 16 User signal 1.
SIGUSR2 17 User signal 2.
SIGCHLD 18 Child status changed.
SIGPWR 19 Power fail or restart.
SIGWINCH 20 Window size change.
SIGURG 21 Urgent socket condition.
SIGPOLL 22 Pollable event.
SIGSTOP 23 Stopped (signal). Pauses a process.
SIGTSTP 24 Stopped (user).
SIGCONT 25 Continued.
SIGTTIN 26 Stopped (tty input).
SIGTTOU 27 Stopped (tty output).
SIGVTALRM 28 Virtual timer expired.
SIGPROF 29 Profiling timer expired.
SIGXCPU 30 CPU time limit exceeded.
SIGXFSZ 31 File size limit exceeded.
SIGWAITING 32 Concurrency signal reserved by threads library.
SIGLWP 33 Inter-LWP signal reserved by threads library.
SIGFREEZE 34 Checkpoint freeze.
SIGTHAW 35 Checkpoint thaw.
SIGCANCEL 36 Cancellation signal reserved by the threads library.

docker stop 实际是发送 SIGTERM 指令即kill -15。该命令会把此信号发送给容器内pid1的进程,因此需要保证服务的主进程是第一个进程。如果使用脚本启动服务或者在启动服务之前有其他动作,那么第一个进程是很可能不是服务主进程,从而导致无法优雅下线。这种情况下需要在主进程启动命令前面加上 exec 关键字来主进程的 id 为 1,例如: cd /data/www/app && exec java -jar app.jar

spring boot shutdown

当 Java 主线程接收到 Kill -15 信号时,SpringBoot 的 MVC 框架本身会保证服务的平滑关闭。内建的Tomcat最多等待5秒,如果5秒内处理不完将会强制关闭。可以做如下修改以延长时间。

    /** 下面三个方法将会修改内置Tomcat的关闭信号量等到时间到30s **/
    public GracefulShutdown gracefulShutdown() {
        return new GracefulShutdown();

    public ConfigurableServletWebServerFactory webServerFactory(final GracefulShutdown gracefulShutdown) {
        TomcatServletWebServerFactory factory = new TomcatServletWebServerFactory();
        return factory;

    public class GracefulShutdown implements TomcatConnectorCustomizer, ApplicationListener<ContextClosedEvent> {
        private Connector connector;

        public void customize(Connector connector) {
            this.connector = connector;

        public void onApplicationEvent(ContextClosedEvent event) {
            Executor executor = this.connector.getProtocolHandler().getExecutor();
            if (executor instanceof ThreadPoolExecutor) {
                try {
                    ThreadPoolExecutor threadPoolExecutor = (ThreadPoolExecutor) executor;
                    if (!threadPoolExecutor.awaitTermination(30, TimeUnit.SECONDS)) {
                        log.warn("Tomcat thread pool did not shut down gracefully within "
                                + "30 seconds. Proceeding with forceful shutdown");
                } catch (InterruptedException ex) {

docker stop 实际是发送 SIGTERM 指令即kill -15。


Thread mainThread = Thread.currentThread();
//register a hook for Shutdown (signal term same as kill -15)
ShutdownHook thread = new ShutdownHook(mainThread, 5000L);
Runtime.getRuntime().addShutdownHook(thread);, args);
  • 为虚拟机JVM注册一个shutdown类型的钩子hook
  • 钩子的含义为:初始化但未执行的线程
  • 此线程会在JVM关闭时执行

- 正常关闭,例如最后一个非守护类型的线程退出时,或是System.exit调用时 - JVM收到了用户的打断interrupt,比如 ctrl+C (=^C)或 SIGTERM



Registers a new virtual-machine shutdown hook.

The Java virtual machine shuts down in response to two kinds of events: - The program exits normally, when the last non-daemon thread exits or when the exit (equivalently, System.exit) method is invoked, or - The virtual machine is terminated in response to a user interrupt, such as typing ^C, or a system-wide event, such as user logoff or system shutdown.

A shutdown hook is simply an initialized but unstarted thread.

When the virtual machine begins its shutdown sequence it will start all registered shutdown hooks in some unspecified order and let them run concurrently. When all the hooks have finished it will then run all uninvoked finalizers if finalization-on-exit has been enabled.

Finally, the virtual machine will halt. Note that daemon threads will continue to run during the shutdown sequence, as will non-daemon threads if shutdown was initiated by invoking the exit method.

Once the shutdown sequence has begun it can be stopped only by invoking the halt method, which forcibly terminates the virtual machine.

Once the shutdown sequence has begun it is impossible to register a new shutdown hook or de-register a previously-registered hook.

Attempting either of these operations will cause an IllegalStateException to be thrown.

Shutdown hooks run at a delicate time in the life cycle of a virtual machine and should therefore be coded defensively.

They should, in particular, be written to be thread-safe and to avoid deadlocks insofar as possible. They should also not rely blindly upon services that may have registered their own shutdown hooks and therefore may themselves in the process of shutting down. Attempts to use other thread-based services such as the AWT event-dispatch thread, for example, may lead to deadlocks.

Shutdown hooks should also finish their work quickly. When a program invokes exit the expectation is that the virtual machine will promptly shut down and exit. When the virtual machine is terminated due to user logoff or system shutdown the underlying operating system may only allow a fixed amount of time in which to shut down and exit. It is therefore inadvisable to attempt any user interaction or to perform a long-running computation in a shutdown hook.

Uncaught exceptions are handled in shutdown hooks just as in any other thread, by invoking the uncaughtException method of the thread’s ThreadGroup object. The default implementation of this method prints the exception’s stack trace to System.err and terminates the thread; it does not cause the virtual machine to exit or halt.

In rare circumstances the virtual machine may abort, that is, stop running without shutting down cleanly. This occurs when the virtual machine is terminated externally, for example with the SIGKILL signal on Unix or the TerminateProcess call on Microsoft Windows. The virtual machine may also abort if a native method goes awry by, for example, corrupting internal data structures or attempting to access nonexistent memory. If the virtual machine aborts then no guarantee can be made about whether or not any shutdown hooks will be run.

Params: - hook – An initialized but unstarted Thread object


  • IllegalArgumentException – If the specified hook has already been registered, or if it can be determined that the hook is already running or has already been run
  • IllegalStateException – If the virtual machine is already in the process of shutting down
  • SecurityException – If a security manager is present and it denies RuntimePermission(“shutdownHooks”)
