 Daemons Running Amok? Daemontools to the Rescue!

Okay, self-serving plug here- still, I think it's a useful howto :) I like DJ Bernstein's software, the downside is the documentation tends to be sparse and cryptic. It makes sense after you figure things out. daemontools is very nice and fast for managing services, and provides a consistent administration interface across all Unixes. One of its nicest features is automatically restarting services that die unexpectedly. Hopefully this will help users get it up and running with a minimum of vexation. See it here.
