Ubic is a polymorphic service manager.
"Polymorphic" means that Ubic can use various pluggable backends for managing services, for configuring services and even for describing a list of all services. Don't panic, it offers easy-to-use default solutions for the common tasks out-of-the-box too!
1 minute intro
Put this code in file
[options] bin = sleep 100
$ ubic start example Starting example... started (pid 41209)
Check its status:
$ ubic status example running (pid 41209) ubic ubic.ping off ubic.update off ubic.watchdog running (pid 93226)
$ ubic status example example running (pid 41209)
Now let's see how watchdog works by killing the process (don't forget to change pid with the pid you got in status command above):
$ kill 41209 $ ubic status example example not running $ ubic-watchdog [Thu May 26 20:20:54 2011] example is broken, restarting
You don't have to run ubic-watchdog manually; it will do its work in background in a minute.
Run 'cpan -i Ubic && ubic-admin setup' to install Ubic.
We also provide .deb packages for Debian/Ubuntu. Latest .deb package can be downloaded from ppa:berekuk/ubic (see https://launchpad.net/~berekuk/+archive/ubic for details).
Debian package build can be reproduced with this command: dzil build && cd Ubic* && cp -r ../debian . && debuild
Rpm package can be created with this command: rpmbuild -ba redhat/perl-Ubic.spec
If you'll write an ebuild for Gentoo, please contribute it back :)
After installing, you can find documentation for this module using perldoc and man commands.
man ubic perldoc Ubic

I don't actually need donations. I get paid at my $job for hacking on Ubic anyway. But I like Flattr's concept, so why not.
You can also +1 Ubic on MetaCPAN if you like it.
