We are using Elasticsearch version 5.4.1 on Windows 10. We run it as windows service (using elasticsearch-service.bat).
Sometimes, when we try to stop the elasticsearch service, it stops but the elasticsearch process keeps running. Is that a known issue?
Is it okay to kill the elasticsearch process after waiting for some time, or it can corrupt the indices?
If yes, how much time should be wait?
If no, how do we recover from that state?
