» 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.
