I have a piece that is due to be published on O'Reilly's Linux DevCenter
site this week about "daemon monitoring daemons", which can be a good
solution to this problem, as the people who mentioned daemontools later in
this thread point out. I review the 4 or 5 most commonly used DMDs,
including daemontools' supervise, and offer reasons for choosing to
implement one or the other.
I'm using monit as a DMD to monitor (and restart) Apache, Webware, named,
sshd, and a few others. Setup is simple.
If anyone wants to see the piece before it's public on O'Reilly's site,
lemme know and I'll send along a draft (it's the first half of larger piece,
the second half of which is doing wireless sysadmin with a Kyocera Palm
