       svc - controls services monitored by supervise(8).


       svc [ -udopchaitkx ] services


       services  consists  of  any number of arguments, each argument naming a
       directory used by supervise(8).

       svc applies all the options to each service in turn.


       -u     Up. If the service is not running,  start  it.  If  the  service
              stops, restart it.

       -d     Down.  If the service is running, send it a TERM signal and then
              a CONT signal. After it stops, do not restart it.

       -o     Once. If the service is not running, start it. Do not restart it
              if it stops.

       -p     Pause. Send the service a STOP signal.

       -c     Continue. Send the service a CONT signal.

       -h     Hangup. Send the service a HUP signal.

       -a     Alarm. Send the service an ALRM signal.

       -i     Interrupt. Send the service an INT signal.

       -t     Terminate. Send the service a TERM signal.

       -k     Kill. Send the service a KILL signal.

       -x     Exit.  supervise(8) will exit as soon as the service is down. If
              you use this option on a stable system, you’re  doing  something
              wrong; supervise(8) is designed to run forever.
