Subject [jira] [Created] (DAEMON-334) Specify a maximum limit for automatic restarts
Date Wed, 03 Jun 2015 21:47:38 GMT
Brett Delle Grazie created DAEMON-334:

             Summary: Specify a maximum limit for automatic restarts
                 Key: DAEMON-334
             Project: Commons Daemon
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Jsvc
    Affects Versions: 1.0.16
         Environment: Unix / Linux systems
            Reporter: Brett Delle Grazie
            Priority: Minor

Our particular use-case requires that JSVC not automatically restart the daemon if the child
process throws a fatal error (e.g. OutOfMemoryError) or similarly the JVM aborts (bug etc.).

In any case the attached patch goes slightly further and provides a '-restarts' option which
can be set to:
-1 (infinite, also the default)
0 (one-shot mode) up to (MAX_INT-1) fixed restart count and specific to the platform.

The patch is just an example of how it could be done.
Note that the intention here is to limit the restart count for successive fatal errors - not
for controlled restarts initiated by the administrator via a signal.
