Per our forum rules, all threads must have a descriptive subject text. For example, do not post questions with subjects like "Help Me!", "Urgent!!" or "Doubt". Post subjects like "Execution Problems with Cron" or "Help with Backup Shell Script".

The reason for this is that nearly 95% of all visitors to this site come here because they are referred by a search engine. In order for future searches on your post (with answers) to work well, the subject field must be something useful and related to the problem!

In addition, current forum users who are kind enough to answer questions should be able to understand the essence of your query at first glance.

So, as a benefit and courtesy to current and future knowledge seekers, please be careful with your subject text. You might receive a forum infraction if you don't pay attention to this.

Thank you.

Slight modification in my requirement, I want in the code that if the process is killed or aborted when the process is running, It should restart at that time also.
The signals are as below:

case SIGHUP: return "JVM hangup";
case SIGINT: return "JVM interrupted";
case SIGQUIT: return "JVM Quit";
case SIGILL: return "Illegal instruction";
case SIGABRT: return "JVM aborted";
case SIGFPE: return "Floating point exception";
case SIGKILL: return "JVM killed";
case SIGBUS: return "Bus error";
case SIGSEGV: return "Segmentation violation";
case SIGSYS: return "Bad argument to system call";
case SIGTERM: return "Software termination signal from kill";
case SIGCHLD: return "Child process terminated or stopped";
default: return "JVM abnormally terminated";
I dont know how to trap these signals in the script.
Please let me solve in this issue.

Thanks in advance.

To keep the forums high quality for all users, please take the time to format your posts correctly.

First of all, use Code Tags when you post any code or data samples so others can easily read your code. You can easily do this by highlighting your code and then clicking on the # in the editing menu. (You can also type code tags [code] and [/code] by hand.)

Second, avoid adding color or different fonts and font size to your posts. Selective use of color to highlight a single word or phrase can be useful at times, but using color, in general, makes the forums harder to read, especially bright colors like red.

Third, be careful when you cut-and-paste, edit any odd characters and make sure all links are working property.

Thank You.

I got Infractions from this answer. I can't still understand why ?
If we give solution and thread maker not test it, why we give answer ?

Makers first answer was
"Slight modification in my requirement, I want in the code that if the process is killed or aborted when the process is running, It should restart at that time also."

1st solution do it. Later added signal list give more info - then the 1st solution is not anymore answer even it's better - it can handle subprocess in every case, but if you try to restart yourself, you can handle only some interrupts.

If you want others to follow rules, then you should follow rules yourself, right?

First of all, the forum rules are clear on the requirement to post descriptive subject text.

Your original subject text was clearly a rule violation, but our moderators did not give you an infraction for that. They were kind to you.

Then, you are unhappy when someone offers an untested suggestion. Why? Are you paying for the service here? What gives you any right to demand answers from others here in the way you want?

Perhaps English is not your native language. That is OK. However, the rules apply to all, regardless of language.

I hope my reply is clear.

You are welcome to post here, but you should follow the rules. Thanks.
