What does “ERROR: Received interrupt signal(2)” mean

What does “ERROR: Received interrupt signal(2)” mean?

I’ve only encountered this error once. A client was using Urchin on Solaris. There were getting the following error:

 

—————————————————— Urchin 5.7.03 (solaris9) starting: 20060309 17:08:30 —————————————————— Processing profile: lineup_letter [17:08:30] Logfile: /urchin/xmr_logs/xmsrweb004_access.200603080000.gz data lines: 1802234 (100%) data hits: 1802071 data proc: 345.69 MB in 00:01:27 (3.973 MB/sec) data range: 2006-03-06 23:59 (-0500) – 2006-03-08 00:00 (-0500) [17:09:57] Logfile: /urchin/xmr_logs/xmsrweb006_access.200603080000.gz data lines: 510000 (20%)^C ERROR: Received interrupt signal(2) WARNING: attempting to soft close database… done. —————————————————— Urchin 5.7.03 (solaris9) finishing: 20060309 17:11:33 ——————————————————

 

To resolve this issue we turned on parallel log tracking and the error went away. We’re not 100% sure why the error occured, but it worked.
