WinSW: Automatically terminate runaway processes in Windows services

      In Jenkins projects we have many users complaining that the slave/agent is "already connected", because they have a runaway slave/agent process. It happens when WinSW gets terminated without executing the process shutdown logic (force kill) or when WinSW fails to terminate the process.

      As a part of WinSW 2.0, it would be great to create a logic, which...

      • records PID of the created process to the disc
      • performs status check of the previously spawned process upon restart
      • terminates the runaway process if required

      It can be done via WinSW 2 "plugin"
