daemontools

Init daemon

daemontools Description
daemontools is the "seminal process supervision toolkit" written by Daniel J. Bernstein as an improvement to the inittab, /etc/ttys, init.d or rc.local alternatives, providing all of the following features.
* Easy service installation and removal
* Easy first-time service startup
* Reliable restarts
* Easy, reliable signalling
* Clean process state
* Portability
Due to lack of ongoing maintenance for daemontools, newer tools such as runit have subsequently been preferred by some.
