       supervise - starts and monitors a service.


       supervise s


       supervise  switches  to  the  directory  named  s  and starts ./run. It
       restarts ./run if ./run exits. It pauses for a  second  after  starting
       ./run, so that it does not loop too quickly if ./run exits immediately.

       If the file s/down exists, supervise does not start ./run  immediately.
       You  can  use  svc(8)  to  start  ./run  and  to give other commands to

       supervise maintains status information in a binary  format  inside  the
       directory s/supervise, which must be writable to supervise.  The status
       information can be read by svstat(8).

       supervise may exit immediately after startup  if  it  cannot  find  the
       files  it needs in s or if another copy of supervise is already running
       in s.  Once supervise is successfully running, it will not exit  unless
       it  is  killed  or  specifically  asked to exit. You can use svok(8) to
       check whether supervise is successfully running. You can use  svscan(8)
       to reliably start a collection of supervise processes.
