Probably some internal server error has caused the service to fail! Check the service logs (default: /var/log/nova/compute.log) to determine the root cause.

What OS are you using? If you're running an OS with systemd then:

sudo systemctl status openstack-nova-compute
sudo systemctl stop openstack-nova-compute

That will stop it gracefully. If it won't stop gracefully, you can use:

sudo systemctl kill openstack-nova-compute

Or old fashioned:

ps -ef | grep <pid>
sudo kill -9 <pid>
