Is there a reason you want to use Drill in Embedded mode and not as a standalone server?
You can always use a screen session and start up Drill embedded mode and then detach that session.

Subject: Drill embedded mode
Hi, We have installed drill in embedded mode on our Linux server to query some of our csv files and produce json data via rest api(8047) to our web application. When I run the command "./drill-embedded" the drill service started and the rest api service is getting connected and all looks good. But once I close the drill shell or if my putty session expired then the drill service is also getting killed.. so our application losses the json data.
Is there a way to keep the drill(embedded) service running in the background all the time(like a web server)? So that we can query on port 8047 any time. Pls let me know any information regarding the same. At the moment we are in critical situation.
