services - service name data base
The services file contains information regarding the known services available in the DARPA Internet. For each service a single line should
be present with the following information:
official service name
Items are separated by any number of blanks and/or tab characters. The port number and protocol name are considered a single item; a ``/''
is used to separate the port and protocol (e.g. ``512/tcp''). A ``#'' indicates the beginning of a comment; characters up to the end of
the line are not interpreted by routines which search the file.
Service names may contain any printable character other than a field delimiter, newline, or comment character.

I'm becoming a dying breed where I work. More and more sys admins are advocating automatically restarting failed services such as tomcat, jboss, etc. I've always been against doing this except with buggy apps that can't be fixed or avoided.
