What is SendSignal.exe


  • | 1967 points

    What are SendSignal.exe, SendSignalCtrlC.exe, sendsignalctrlc-x64.exe, sendsignal-x64.exe in {LaragonRoot}\bin\laragon? What do these exe's do?
    My antivirus is constantly sending these files to Quarantine.

    0_1510400578686_upload-4447dbee-68cf-4629-aaa3-243d6173bca2

    Then I do get:

    No file!
    F:\laragon\bin\laragon\utils\SendSignal-x64.exe

    No file!
    F:\laragon\bin\laragon\utils\SendSignalCtrlC-x64.exe
    ExePath: F:\laragon\bin\mysql\mysql-5.7.19-winx64\bin\mysqld.exe

    No file!
    F:\laragon\bin\laragon\utils\SendSignalCtrlC-x64.exe
    ExePath: F:\laragon\bin\apache\httpd-2.4.29-win64-VC14\bin\httpd.exe

    errors every time I stop the server, which is very annoying. So please guide me on this!

    @bantya : These are ultilities to help graceful shutdown your services.

    @leokhoa :
    I observed that when those files are quarantined, the server takes some time to shut down. Does having these files around makes the services shut down faster or something?
    I am a bit curious here, but what do these files do?

    @bantya : You should send these files to your AV company and ask them to whitelist them. It will help other users having the same issue. As I said:

    Having these file makes your services shutdown gracefully. (For example with MySQL, when you shutdown, Laragon will ask them to send signals to MySQL that it should complete all transactions, save unchanged data,...)

    If your AV misuses them, your OS will force shutdown unsafely and your data may be corrupted.

    @leokhoa Thanks for the reply and as you suggested I already did tell my AV company to whitelist them.
