How to Stop a BDR replication job safely

What is the best way to stop a BDR job?


Does abort do this safely without causing problems?


How about in yarn using the kill option?

Re: How to Stop a BDR replication job safely



There is a Cloudera Manager command and a YARN job.

- To Abort the command, you can click on the Command Details button under the replication schedule with a running command.

- If the YARN job continues to run, you can kill it like any other YARN job.


Aborting/Killing is safe.  The next time you run replication, any files that were already copied will be skipped; any that weren't copied will be copied.
