       restartd - process checker and/or reloader


       Restartd is a daemon for checking running and not running processes. It
       reads the /proc directory every n seconds and does a  POSIX  regexp  on
       the process names. You can execute a script or a program if the process
       is or is not running.

       For executing, restard uses system(3).

       For  logging,  restartd  using  syslog  with   LOG_INFO   and   LOG_ERR


       restartd follows the GNU command line syntax.
