FreeBSD sysutils : daemontools

Service monitoring and logging utilities by djb

 Daemontools is a small set of /very/ useful utilities, from Dan
Bernstein.  They are mainly used for controlling processes, and
maintaining logfiles.

v. 1.26
date: 2007/10/30 10:49:15;  author: roam;  state: Exp;  lines: +6 -1
Add a knob to disable the run-time testsuite, e.g. when building with
a NFS-mounted work directory (prompted by PR 115100).
Add support for logging through multilog instead of readproctitle for
the main svscan process and document the startup script variables
(loosely based on PR 111749).

v. 1.24 date: 2006/09/25 11:44:38; author: roam; state: Exp; lines: +13 -4 Add the sigq12 patch, which allows the svc utility to tell supervise to send SIGQUIT, SIGUSR1, or SIGUSR2 to the daemon process. OPTIONS'ify - all but the STARTUP_SCRIPT variable, which is a string, not a flag. Appease portlint partially - unquote the RESTRICTED message. Bump PORTREVISION. Requested by: "Brent B.

v. 1.16 date: 2004/06/28 23:56:18; author: roam; state: Exp; lines: +1 -1 Switch from using /bin/csh to /bin/sh, as suggested on -ports.

Bump PORTREVISION to indicate a functionality change - or rather, to indicate a change that actually makes this a FreeBSD port.. Final push by: Dan Langille in a somewhat unrelated e-mail exchange Obtained from: a svscan SysV init script that I somehow managed to lose the source and URL for :(
v. 1.10 date: 2002/01/04 14:38:11; author: roam; state: Exp; lines: +14 -6 Update to 0.76. Assume maintainership. Reviewed by: nbm Approved by: nbm

This sleep could be interrupted by a SIGCHLD in the case of a failing service, and the service could be restarted way more than the documented once-per-second. Move the sleep back before the fork(), just don't sleep before the very first fork, so the service starts faster. Silence by: Daniel J. Bernstein (no telling if he'll fix this in later daemontools releases, so I guess we'll have to do it as part of our port..) Approved by: nbm (maintainer)
v. 1.8 date: 2000/12/03 05:16:41; author: steve; state: Exp; lines: +2 -2 Put the NO_PACKAGE strings in double quotes to the escaped single quote becomes just a single quote instead \'.
