If you are using ./bin/elasticsearch script then you can use -f option
(./bin/elasticsearch -f) to run the server in the foreground (and then
shutting down the server by Ctrl+C), if you start the script without -f
option then it is started in the background which you can then stop using
kill command. Killing the running process (not kill -9) should properly
shutdown the node.

Before, I use ./bin/service/elasticsearch start|stop. Now, there's now
./bin/service/elasticsearch command, and ./bin/elasticsearch stop does not
seem to stop current running elasticsearch process. So how do you properly
shutdown an elasticsearch node right now?
