Shutting down the Scalable RIP

This page applies to Harlequin v13.1r0 and later; and to Harlequin Core but not Harlequin MultiRIP

Clean shutdown of the Scalable RIP involves cleanly shutting down all farm RIP instances and finally the controlling RIP. The controlling RIP does its best to shut down all of its farm RIP instances during shutdown.

There are four ways a Scalable RIP can be shut down:

1          When jobs are specified on the command line and no hotfolders are specified, the Scalable RIP will shut down when all jobs specified on the command line are exhausted.

2          At any time, Ctrl-C can be entered into the console or shell used to invoke the Scalable RIP. The Scalable RIP will trap this SIGINT and cleanly shut down, aborting any jobs in progress.

3          A PS snippet can be dropped into a specially configured hotfolder as outlined in Setting up a hotfolder to shut down the Scalable RIP .

4          A DFE message can be sent to the Scalable RIP; the message is provided by the rf_send_farm_stop () call in the libripfarm integration library via an SDK API or can be invoked using the ripfarmtesttool .
