svscan(8)						      System Manager's Manual							 svscan(8)

NAME
svscan - starts and monitors a collection of services SYNOPSIS
svscan [ directory ] DESCRIPTION
svscan starts one supervise(8) process for each subdirectory of the current directory, up to a limit of 1000 subdirectories. svscan skips subdirectory names starting with dots. supervise(8) must be in svscan's path. svscan optionally starts a pair of supervise(8) processes, one for a subdirectory s, one for s/log, with a pipe between them. It does this if the name s is at most 255 bytes long and s/log exists. (In versions 0.70 and below, it does this if s is sticky.) svscan needs two free descriptors for each pipe. Every five seconds, svscan checks for subdirectories again. If it sees a new subdirectory, it starts a new supervise(8) process. If it sees an old subdirectory where a supervise(8) process has exited, it restarts the supervise(8) process. In the log case it reuses the same pipe so that no data is lost. svscan is designed to run forever. If it has trouble creating a pipe or running supervise(8), it prints a message to stderr; it will try again five seconds later. If svscan is given a command-line argument directory, it switches to that directory when it starts. SEE ALSO

Comments/Experience with DJBernstein's tools? supervise, djdns, dnscache

Does anyone have experience with D J Bernstein's tools, such as "daemontools", supervise, djdns, and/or dnscache? If so, can you tell me about reliability, if they are really worth replacing their counterparts (supervise <=> inittab; djdns/dnscache <=> bind ) and why? Thanks in advanced. (0 Replies)
