Supervisor

Supervisor can help you with relaunching Logfollow server after critical error and system reboot. It also provide you with simple console and web-based monitoring tool for checking server status, reading logs tail and restarting process remotely.

You can find more information in Supervisor documentation. Firstly, you should setup Supervisor and ensure that supervisord daemon in already running:

sudo -s
## Generate configuration
logfollowctl.py supervisor_config /etc/supervisor/conf.d/logfollowd.conf

## Restart supervisor in order to spawn new config file
supervisorctl reload

## Check results...
supervisorctl status logfollowd
    logfollowd                       RUNNING    pid 5390, uptime 0:00:13

You can also provide list of params for logfollowd.py launching calling logfollowctl.py util:

logfollowctl.py supervisor_config --logging=debug --port=8001 --host=127.0.0.1

Note that, if don't use *.conf filename as first param after supervisor_config generated configuration will be pushed to STDOUT. It can be useful for debuging configuration file and for using in pipes.
