How IceGrid shutdown a NodeJs?

I try to make NodeJs as IceServer and use IceGrid for managerment.
(We use NodeJs as WebServer as well,so that the developers use only HTML & JS for business development)

Now,I almost get it by using C++ Addons in NodeJs.(I have used slice2cpp, not slice2js)

The problem I meet when I use IceGrid to shutdown the Nodejs,it cost me just 60 seconds to wait.

Is there any API that i can get the shutdown order?
Is there anyother solution for my requirement?

    On which platform do you have this issue?

    On Unix, the IceGrid node sends the SIGTERM signal to the process and on Windows it generates a Ctrl-Break event for the process. It sounds like your NodeJS process doesn't exit on getting this signal/event. The process API ( ) allows to specify the behavior on getting this signal/event, you could try to set a handler to see if you correctly get these signals.

    If something is preventing the process to terminate in a promptly manner, the only workaround I can think of is to set a small deactivation timeout on the server by setting deactivation-timeout on the server descriptor.

    Finaly,i found that it's a threading problem in my C++ Addons.

    I have new a thread to run the ice communicator,so that the main thread can return to NodeJs to check the msg queue in C++ Addons. Now I set a flag to end it.
