Does stopping the Stash service wait for current transactions to finish? If not, is there a way to manually put Stash into maintenance mode (such as when the backup client is run)?
No you don't need to worry about operations being executed prior to stopping start service. The maintenance mode only intends to wait for eventual connections to the database from plugins, for example, exactly to keep this consistency. This is only applicable to the backup scenario where you want to have minimum downtime before backing up your data.
When you're stopping Stash, all this is taken care for you and you don't need any additional step but stopping start service.
What exactly do you intend to do? We've published how to put Stash on maintenance mode on the article below:
I exactly intend not to screw up my Stash production instance and to reduce the chance of interferrence for my users.
My concern is if there is any risk to stopping the Stash service (Windows). What if a user is in the middle of pushing a large branch to Stash and the service is stopped right in the middle of it. Will the service stop in a friendly manner and allow the push to fully complete before stopping?
The reason that I asked about maintenance mode is that the documentation says that it will wait for operations to complete. If stopping the service does not do the same, then I could potentially want to put Stash into maintenance mode before stopping the service just to be safe.
As a project manager, I have discovered that different developers want to bring their previous branching method with them when they join the team. Some developers are used to performing individual wo...
