collectdmon — Monitoring daemon for collectd

Synopsis

collectdmon [options] [-- collectd options]

Description

collectdmon is a small "wrapper" daemon which starts and monitors the collectd daemon. If collectd terminates it will automatically be restarted, unless collectdmon was told to shut it down.

Options

collectdmon supports the following options:

-c <path>
Specify the pathname of the collectd binary. You may either specify an absolute path or simply the name of the binary in which case the PATH variable will be searched for it. The default is "collectd".
-P <pid-file>
Specify the pid file. The default is "/var/run/collectdmon.pid".
-h
Output usage information and exit.
collectd options
Specify options that are passed on to collectd. If it is not already included, -f will be added to these options. See collectd(1).

Signals

collectdmon accepts the following signals:

SIGINT, SIGTERM
These signals cause collectdmon to terminate collectd, wait for its termination and then shut down.
SIGHUP
This signal causes collectdmon to terminate collectd, wait for its termination and then restart it.
