Daemonizing log.io on Ubuntu using upstart (v0.3.x)

v0.3.x of log.io no longer uses forever to automatically daemonize the server and harvester processes. Here's an example of how to use upstart on Ubuntu to automatically start the server and/or harvester on startup, as well as ensure that it gets respawned if it crashes. The following assumes you installed log.io globally.

For the server, paste the following into /etc/init/log.io-server.conf:

description "start log.io server"

start on runlevel [2345]
stop on runlevel [016]
respawn

exec su -s /bin/sh -c 'exec "$0" "$@"' ubuntu -- /usr/local/bin/log.io-server

For the harvester, paste the following into /etc/init/log.io-harvester.conf:

description "start log.io harvester"
start on runlevel [2345]
stop on runlevel [016]
respawn

exec su -s /bin/sh -c 'exec "$0" "$@"' ubuntu -- /usr/local/bin/log.io-harvester

The server and/or harvester will now launch on machine startup.

To manually start the server and/or harvester:

sudo start log.io-server
sudo start log.io-harvester

To manually stop the server and/or harvester:

sudo stop log.io-server
sudo stop log.io-harvester

You can access the logs in:

/var/log/upstart/log.io-server.log
/var/log/upstart/log.io-harvester.log
