Kill child processes of an OpenRC service managed by supervise-daemon

by 493msi   Last Updated May 23, 2020 00:01 AM

I have a shell script that spawns multiple processes, which run for an indefinite amount of time, however with the following OpenRC init script and the supervise-daemon daemon, upon stopping the service, only the shell script is killed and its child processes (mostly Python scripts) keep running.



depend() {
    use logger dns net
    after network sshd

Is there a way to kill the entire service process tree with supervise-daemon when killing the shell script without resorting to dirty workarounds like trapping the kill signal within the shell script and propagating it to children?
