OpenSolaris 2009.06 - man page for ctrun (opensolaris section 1)

ctrun(1)				  User Commands 				 ctrun(1)

       ctrun - execute command in a process contract

       /usr/bin/ctrun [options] command [ argument]...

       The  ctrun  utility  starts a command in a newly created process contract. ctrun holds the
       contract and can be instructed to output or respond to events that occur within	the  con-

       For additional information about process contracts, see contract(4) and process(4).

       The following options are supported:

       -A fmri aux		 Sets the process contract creator's auxiliary field.

       -i event,[event ...]	 Sets the informative and fatal events, respectively.
       -f event,[event ...]
				 The following are valid events:

				 core	   A member process dumped core.

					   core events are informative by default.

				 empty	   The last member of the process contract exited.

				 exit	   A member process exited.

				 fork	   A process was added to the process contract.

				 hwerr	   A member process encountered a hardware error.

					   hwerr events are fatal by default.

				 signal    A  member  process  received  a  fatal  signal  from a
					   process in a different process contract.

				 Only core, hwerr, and signal events can be made fatal.

				 More events can be delivered than requested  if  ctrun  requires
				 them  for  its  own  purposes.  For  example, empty messages are
				 always requested if a lifetime of contract is specified. See -l.

       -F fmri			 Sets the process contract service FMRI field. To set this  field
				 the  caller  is required to have the {PRIV_CONTRACT_IDENTITY} in
				 its effective set.

       -l lifetime		 The following valid lifetime values are supported:

				 child	     ctrun exits when the command  exits,  regardless  of
					     whether the contract is empty.

				 contract    ctrun  exits  only  when the contract exits. This is
					     the default.

				 none	     ctrun exits immediately, orphaning the contract.

       -o option,[option ...]	 The following options are supported:

				 noorphan    Kills all processes in the contract  if  the  holder
					     (ctrun) exits.

					     This  option  is  invalid when a lifetime of none is

				 pgrponly    If a fatal error occurs, kills at most  the  process
					     group of which the errant process is a member.

				 regent      The  contract  inherits  inheritable  contracts when
					     abandoned by member processes.

       -r count 		 If the contract encounters a  fault,  this  option  attempts  to
				 restart  the  command count times. If count is 0, the attempt to
				 restart continues  indefinitely.  By  default,  ctrun	does  not
				 attempt to restart the command.

				 This  option  is  invalid  if	a lifetime other than contract is
				 specified or if the pgrponly option is used.

       -t			 If the contract created by ctrun inherited subcontracts from its
				 member  processes, attempts to transfer them to the new contract
				 when restarting.

				 This option is invalid unless -r is also specified.

       -v			 Displays contract events and ctrun actions as they occur.

       -V			 Displays verbose contract events, as are  displayed  by  the  -v
				 option of ctwatch. Implies -v.

       The following operands are supported:

       argument    One of the strings treated as an argument to command.

       command	   The command to be passed to execvp(2). See exec(2).

       Example 1 Running a Shell in a New Process Contract

       The following example runs a shell in a new process contract:

	 example% ctrun -l child -o pgrponly ksh

       The  -l	child option argument is specified so that ctrun won't wait until all children of
       the shell have exited. -o pgrponly is specified because an interactive ksh puts	each  job
       in a new process group, and an error in one job is unlikely to affect the others.

       Example 2 Running a Simple Server

       The following example runs a simple server:

	 example% ctrun -r 0 -t -f hwerr,core,signal server

       The  -r	0  and -t options are specified to indicate that if the server encounters a fatal
       error, ctrun should try to restart it. The -f option makes "hwerr", "core",  and  "signal"
       fatal events.

       If  command  is specified and successfully invoked (see exec(2)), the exit status of ctrun
       is the exit status of command. Otherwise, ctrun exits with one of the following values:

       123    The child process exited abnormally.

       124    ctrun encountered an internal error.

       125    Invalid arguments were provided to ctrun.

       126    command was found but could not be invoked.

       127    command could not be found.
