Not for alot of things. AIX has a very neat daemon called SRC (system
resource controller). Basically you do things like:

  stopsrc -s sendmail
  startsrc -s sendmail

or whole groups of services:

  stopsrc -g nfs

"So what" I hear you say.  Well SRC watches over programs so that when
Apache crashes, you get a nice little error message out of errpt (similar to
syslog).  I'm not sure, but one feature that would be neat would be to
automatically restart a daemon (like inittab can do - with "spawning too
fast - disabled" support etc).
