procdog: Lightweight command-line process control

Project description

Procdog is a simple command-line tool to start, stop, and check the health of processes.

It is intended to be a simple, cross-platform alternative to standard tools like System V service scripts, Upstart, and systemd, for use in development, in build systems and test harnesses, etc.

It operates by starting a simple daemon that popen()s and monitors the process. The daemon listens and accepts commands on a local Unix domain socket, making it possible to check the process is running or terminate it, and to do basic health checks. Every process is independent: There is a single Procdog daemon for each monitored process. The daemon exits if the process terminates.

Many options can be set via a configuration file.
