In Jenkins projects we have many users complaining that the slave/agent is "already connected", because they have a runaway slave/agent process. It happens when WinSW gets terminated without executing the process shutdown logic (force kill) or when WinSW fails to terminate the process.
As a part of WinSW 2.0, it would be great to create a logic, which...
- records PID of the created process to the disc
- performs status check of the previously spawned process upon restart
- terminates the runaway process if required
It can be done via WinSW 2 "plugin"
