is there a way to shutdown a datomic cloud client? I've found that when I create a datomic cloud client in a script, my script will hang instead of exiting. I tried to call shutdown-agents but that didn't work

can you thread dump and see what threads are still alive?


yes, but I don't know how to do that

don’t trust that guy, he’s an idiot

here's output from my script

if you’re in a repl, just ctrl-\


this is in Stu's transcriptor, but I've noticed the same hanging behavior in all my clj run tasks that start up a datomic client


For test purposes, I am able to start/stop peer servers by running/killing the run script and its child java process by calling the OS shell from clojure. It's an ugly solution, probably OS-dependent, and every call to run takes a fair amount of time to complete. Dev/test processes would be facilitated if I could run just one peer server process and create/delete mem DBs programatically.


I'm using datomic cloud, not the peer server, so I don't have a run script in my case


is that ctrl-\ documented somewhere? I’d never heard of it until today.. wondering if there’s more 🙂

it’s a jvm thing (ctrl-break on windows, ctrl-\ in *nix)

I don’t think there are any other standard handlers other than ctrl-c

and most Clojure repls use ctrl-d to quit (although some use ctrl-c)
