Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to Killing an Aolserver thread?

Posted by David Walker on
As far as I know, no.  From our discussion on the AOLserver list it appears
that pthreads (the underlying threading library that AOLserver uses) does
not have a thread kill command.  It does have a command, pthread_cancel I
think, that asks a thread to quit.

I have been planning to look into this as I have some long running page
requests.  They are not consuming very much resources but they seem to run
forever.  I'm hoping that a cancel command would do the job for them.
