Stops a MemSQL node given a MemSQL node ID.


usage: memsql-ops memsql-stop [--settings-file SETTINGS_FILE] [--async]
                              [--all] [--no-prompt] [--hard-stop] [--timeout]

Stop a MemSQL node.

positional arguments:
  memsql_id             The ID of the MemSQL node to stop.

optional arguments:
  --settings-file SETTINGS_FILE
                        A path to a MemSQL Ops settings.conf file. If not set,
                        we will use the file in the same directory as the
                        MemSQL Ops binary.
  --async               If this option is true, we will exit without waiting
                        for MemSQL to be fully stopped.
  --all                 Stop all MemSQL nodes in the cluster.
  --no-prompt           Skip interactive prompts if ID is not provided. This
                        should be used for non-interactive scripts and
  --hard-stop           If true, we will kill the MemSQL process instead of
                        stopping it. This option cannot be used with --all.
  --timeout             A time duration in seconds during which MemSQL Ops
                        will attempt to stop the MemSQL process. If this
                        argument is not specified, the default timeout is
                        60 seconds. 


When stopping a leaf, you should detach it from the cluster first to avoid possibly losing unreplicated data in asynchronous replication mode on that leaf. See DETACH LEAF for more information on this command.

Stopping the master aggregator will leave your cluster without a master aggregator. A master aggregator is required to handle automatic partition failover and DDL operations. Thus, if you plan on stopping the master aggregator for an extended period of time, you should promote another aggregator to master aggregator to preserve availability of all services. See AGGREGATOR SET AS MASTER for more information on this command.
