.B psadwatchd
checks on an interval of every five seconds to make sure that kmsgsd
and psad are running on the box. If either of the other two daemons
have died, psadwatchd will restart the daemon and notify each
email address listed in the EMAIL_ADDRESSES variable (see
/etc/psad/psad.conf) that the daemon has been restarted.
.B psadwatchd
uses the psad.conf configuration file which by default is
located at /etc/psad/psad.conf, but a different path can be specified
on the command line.
.BR \-c\ \<config\-file>
Specify path to config file instead of using the default configuration file

derives from /etc/psad/psad.conf (or other override files) on STDERR.
.BR \-h

.BR \-O\ \<config\-file>
Override config variable values that are normally read from the
/etc/psad/psad.conf file with values from the specified file. Multiple
override config files can be given as a comma separated list.
