Re: Bug#733452: init system daemon readiness protocol
Hello Mr. Jackson,
I was curious: why should SOCK_STREAM be used instead of SOCK_DGRAM in
your proposed protocol?
Have you seen Lennart Poettering's pastebin of a short daemon side
meets all your desired criteria, it is used in one init system already,
and it is very extensible. Now that you know that systemd does not
actually use SOCK_SEQPACKET, but SOCK_DGRAM, do you have any changes in
opinion of the systemd approach?
Thank you for your time,
