I want my Shutdown FFAStrans Farm back :D

Hi taner,

This was removed mainly for 2 reasons:

1. The new service implementation made it much more difficult do deal with in a good manner. And even if we was to re-implement it....(see 2.)
2. The feature potentially gave non-admin users the ability to shut down farm(s)...which is not very good in a production/enterprise environment.

Are you running FFAStans as service or (GUI) application?

Ok! Thanks for explanation.

I'm using FFAStrans at the moment as (GUI) Appllication but will move forward to service.
I assume I would have then ability to perform this task?

Hi Taner,

I realize I did not answer you on this, so sorry for the delay! When running as service, you have a "cleaner" way of stopping services through scripting, but I'm really not sure this should be an inbuilt functionality in FFAStrans. I'm a bit concerned about the safety of it. Also, it's quite uncommon for systems to enable easy shutdown of a complete set of services and applications throughout different hosts. Again, a safety concern. But I can definitely see the benefit of it, and that's why I implemented it a few years ago. However, I'm not so sure anymore. So I think I should also consult with my team on this topic.

No problem at all.
The feature made it more comfortable in the past but was never vital.

In my opinion, the webinterface should provide advanced farm resource overview and node management.
