Package: nagios2-common
Version: 2.6-2
Severity: minor
Tags: patch

In the main script /etc/init.d/nagios2 we have these lines:

stop () {
    if [ -n "$PID" ]; then
      kill -15 -"$PID"
#      sleep 1
#      if kill -0 "$PID" 2>/dev/null; then
#        ret=$?
#        log_progress_msg "Waiting . "
#        cnt=0
#        while kill -0 "$PID" 2>/dev/null; do
#          ret=$?
#          cnt=`expr "$cnt" + 1`
#          if [ "$cnt" -gt 15 ]; then
#            kill -9 -"$PID"
#            break
#          fi
#          sleep 2
#          log_progress_msg ". "
#        done
#      fi

In most cases the 'stop' action is working only with the SIG_TERM (15)
send to the running process, but it would be good to retry stopping the
service in the case the first attempt failed.

It seems to me that the code is commented by mistake, otherwise it would
be deleted from the main script.
