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).
