A new platform for documentation and tutorials is launching soon.
We are migrating Nomad documentation into HashiCorp Developer, our new developer experience.
»Command: alloc stop
alloc stop command allows a user to perform an in-place restart of an
entire allocation or individual task.
nomad alloc stop [options] <allocation>
alloc stop command requires a single argument, specifying the alloc ID or
prefix to stop. If there is an exact match based on the provided alloc ID or
prefix, then the alloc will be stopped and rescheduled. Otherwise, a list of
matching allocs and information will be displayed.
Stop will issue a request to stop and reschedule the allocation. An interactive monitoring session will display log lines as the allocation completes shutting down. It is safe to exit the monitor early with ctrl-c.
When ACLs are enabled, this command requires a token with the
list-jobs capabilities for the
-address=<addr>: The address of the Nomad server. Overrides the
NOMAD_ADDRenvironment variable if set. Defaults to
-region=<region>: The region of the Nomad server to forward commands to. Overrides the
NOMAD_REGIONenvironment variable if set. Defaults to the Agent's local region.
-namespace=<namespace>: The target namespace for queries and actions bound to a namespace. Overrides the
NOMAD_NAMESPACEenvironment variable if set. If set to
'*', job and alloc subcommands query all namespaces authorized to user. Defaults to the "default" namespace.
-no-color: Disables colored command output. Alternatively,
NOMAD_CLI_NO_COLORmay be set. This option takes precedence over
-force-color: Forces colored command output. This can be used in cases where the usual terminal detection fails. Alternatively,
NOMAD_CLI_FORCE_COLORmay be set. This option has no effect if
-no-coloris also used.
-ca-cert=<path>: Path to a PEM encoded CA cert file to use to verify the Nomad server SSL certificate. Overrides the
NOMAD_CACERTenvironment variable if set.
-ca-path=<path>: Path to a directory of PEM encoded CA cert files to verify the Nomad server SSL certificate. If both
-ca-certis used. Overrides the
NOMAD_CAPATHenvironment variable if set.
-client-cert=<path>: Path to a PEM encoded client certificate for TLS authentication to the Nomad server. Must also specify
-client-key. Overrides the
NOMAD_CLIENT_CERTenvironment variable if set.
-client-key=<path>: Path to an unencrypted PEM encoded private key matching the client certificate from
-client-cert. Overrides the
NOMAD_CLIENT_KEYenvironment variable if set.
-tls-server-name=<value>: The server name to use as the SNI host when connecting via TLS. Overrides the
NOMAD_TLS_SERVER_NAMEenvironment variable if set.
-tls-skip-verify: Do not verify TLS certificate. This is highly not recommended. Verification will also be skipped if
-token: The SecretID of an ACL token to use to authenticate API requests with. Overrides the
NOMAD_TOKENenvironment variable if set.
-detach: Return immediately instead of entering monitor mode. After the stop command is submitted, a new evaluation ID is printed to the screen, which can be used to examine the rescheduling evaluation using the eval status command.
-verbose: Display verbose output.
-no-shutdown-delayIgnore the group and task
shutdown_delayconfiguration so that there is no delay between service deregistration and task shutdown. Note that using this flag will result in failed network connections to the allocation being stopped.
