Configure the Graceful Shutdown Timeout property

You can increase the value of the Graceful Shutdown Timeout property from its default three minutes.

The Graceful Shutdown Timeout Property specifes a timeout that only affects a graceful shutdown of the entire HBase service, not individual RegionServers. Therefore, if you have a large cluster with many RegionServers, you should strongly consider increasing the timeout from its default of 180 seconds.

  1. In Cloudera Manager, select the HBase service.
  2. Click the Configuration tab.
  3. Search for Graceful Shutdown.
  4. Edit the value of the Graceful Shutdown Timeout property.
  5. Click Save Changes.
