SIGTERM meanings and causes

Post by eric_p » Fri May 07, 2021 6:29 pm

Hi all,
I've been trying to find if there are any defined meanings/causes of the various SIGTERM messages.
Searching the web for "SIGTERM" is a mess because it's in every posted log so this creates, well, you already know.
  • Can anyone point me to documentation or articles defining OpenVPN SIGTERM messages and likely causes?
  • What is the difference between SIGTERM[hard,] and SIGTERM[soft,]?
Thanks

As with most things Linux, The Manual!

Probably, soft does a restart and hard does not.
