Issue/Introduction

There is a risk of database corruption if the SpectroSERVER system is rebooted prior to shutting down the SpectroSERVER and Archive Manager processes gracefully.

When the system is rebooted, processd has a specific amount of time to shutdown the Spectrum processes gracefully before it is killed along with the Spectrum processes. 

The default time for both Linux and Windows is 20 seconds. 

Sometimes, this is not enough time for the SpectroSERVER and Archive Manager process to shutdown.

This knowledge article discusses how this time can be increased to avoid possible database corruption during a system reboot.
