Johanna Amann created BIT-1356:

             Summary: Bro process sticks around after broctl stop
                 Key: BIT-1356
                 URL: https://bro-tracker.atlassian.net/browse/BIT-1356
             Project: Bro Issue Tracker
          Issue Type: Problem
          Components: BroControl
    Affects Versions: git/master
            Reporter: Johanna Amann
             Fix For: 2.4

It seems that after running a "broctl stop" not all bro processes are killed immediately. On our cluster, one of the processes keeps running; I seems like it eventually terminates after all log-compression is done. Is that on purpose or is that a bug?

Ps output  (on the node running the manager, bro process in first line, including the running compression jobs for completeness):
