supervisor

supervisor supervises a single process. It ensures to preserve the same PID of that process through any arbitrary number of restarts, executable upgrades, and crashes.

Features

  • preserves the supervisor-PID over your application for easy tooling with init systems
  • keeps track application PID changes by using Linux Control Groups (cgroups).
  • restarts your application on crashes
  • minimalisticly not overbloated with unnecessary features

Examples

supervisor -- /usr/sbin/x0d -X -f /etc/xzero/x0d.conf

supervisor -- /usr/bin/haproxy -f /etc/haproxy/haproxy.cfg

Usage

supervisor: a process supervising tool
  (c) 2009-2014 Christian Parpart <trapni@gmail.com>

usage:
  supervisor [supervisor options] -- /path/to/app [app options ...]

options:
  -f,--fork             fork supervisor into background
  -p,--pidfile=PATH     location to store the current supervisor PID
  -u,--user=NAME        drops application user-privileges
  -g,--group=NAME       drops application group-privileges
  -l,--delay-limit=N    maximum delay to sleep between restarts [80]
  -e,--restart-on-error Restart the application also on normal
                        termination but with an exit code != 0.
  -c,--restart-on-crash restart application on crash (SIGSEGV)
  -q,--quiet            decreases verbosity level,
                        use -qq to void runtime errors too
  -v,--version          Prints program version number and exits
  -h,--help             Prints this help and exits.

Examples:
    supervisor -c -- /usr/sbin/x0d
    supervisor -p /var/run/xzero/supervisor.pid -- /usr/sbin/x0d \
               --no-fork

Known Caveats

  • The project is still pretty young, so expect things to break.
  • Application PID tracking via cgroups requires supervisor to run as root. But that's not a problem for now as the application is meant to drop root (or get dropped) anyways.
