#2401 new enhancement

Deployment on Heroku: add options to handle SIGTERM

I am using Nginx on Heroku in Docker container along with Gunicorn/Supervisor.

When Heroku scales down it first sends SIGTERM to all processes in the container and after 30 seconds it sends SIGKILL. I don't think, that I can change this behavior.

After receiving SIGTERM Nginx terminates ungracefully not waiting for running requests.

I wonder if the possibility to terminate gracefully on SIGTERM signal could be added.

I found temporary workaround by compiling Nginx from sources and patching them:

curl -L -o nginx.tar.gz
tar -xvzf nginx.tar.gz
cd nginx-1.22.0
sed -i "s/ QUIT$/TIUQ/g" src/core/ngx_config.h
sed -i "s/ TERM$/QUIT/g" src/core/ngx_config.h
sed -i "s/ TIUQ$/TERM/g" src/core/ngx_config.h
make install
