This is a REALLY quick and dirty guide to what you need to know to
migrate from V7.0 to V7.1 in Earthworm. A new feature, added in v7.1,
allows an operator to stop a given module using the stopmodule command. This allows you
to stop a module without having statmgr restart it! The stopmodule
implementation requires that a TYPE_STOP
message be added to your earthworm.d.
Yes, that's really all there is to it. See the documentation on startstop
for more information on how to use the stop feature.
