Stop-msg Metermaid With Multiple Processes Results In A Restart Of Metermaid

(Doc ID 2319322.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 22, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Messaging Server - Version 8.0.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Oracle Communications Messaging Server 8.0.2.0.20170922 64bit (built Sep 22 2017)
libimta.so 8.0.2.0.20170922 64bit (built 20:22:10, Sep 22 2017)
Using /gcs/app/mail/msg/config/config.xml (compiled)
NSS Library Version: 3.32


This only happens when multiple processes are stopped at the same time (i.e. stop-msg mta metermaid store), it is observed that a new metermaid process is started up and a notification email saying "metermaid: restarted" is
received.

However, when metermaid is stopped by itself (i.e. stop-msg metermaid), it shuts down normally.
