* Manage service information persistently. Service data is saved to
* a state file when monit runs in daemon mode for each poll
* cycle. Monit use this file to recover from a crash or to maintain
* service data persistently during a reload. The location of the
* state file may be set from the command line or set in the monitrc
* file, if not set, the default is ~/.monit.state.

* Save service state information to the state file
void State_save();
* Check if we should update current services with persistent state
* information. The logic is as follows: Iff a state file is present
* *and* older than the running monit daemon's lock file we have had a
* crash and should update data from the state file.
* @return TRUE if the state should be updated otherwise FALSE
int State_shouldUpdate();
* Update the current service list with data from the state file. We
* do *only* change services found in *both* the monitrc file and in
* the state file. The algorithm:
* Assume the control file was changed and a new service (B) was added
* so the monitrc file now contains the services: A B and C. The
* running monit daemon only knows the services A and C. Upon restart
* after a crash the monit daemon first read the monitrc file and
* creates the service list structure with A B and C. We then read the
* state file and update the service A and C since they are found in
* the state file, B is not found in this file and therefore not
* changed.
* The same strategy is used if a service was removed, e.g. if the
* service A was removed from monitrc; when reading the state file,
* service A is not found in the current service list (the list is
* always generated from monitrc) and therefore A is simply discarded.
* Finally, after the monit service state is updated this function
* writes the new state file.
