Gracefully shut down an HBase RegionServer
You can gracefully shut down an HBase RegionServer using Cloudera Manager.
- In Cloudera Manager, select the HBase service.
- Click the Instance tab.
- From the list of Role Instances, select the RegionServer or RegionServers you want to shut down gracefully.
- Click Actions for Selected.
Select Decommission (Graceful Stop).
If you cancel the graceful shutdown before the Graceful Shutdown Timeout expires, you can still manually stop a RegionServer by selecting Actions for Selected > Stop, which sends a SIGTERM (kill -5) signal.
