I've used the below script both with and without
expect fork. It's purpose is to start a
.exe file on start-up, and if it fails, to restart it. The mono application must be started by root/sudo to work.
- Application Starts and shows
Listening to port 8888in output log
- Upstart goes into respawn and tries to restart the script despite it already being started
- An error message per respawn attempt appears in the output log saying that the application is already running
- After an hour or so, the application fails/stops, and respawn is not triggered
Here is my upstart script:
author "me" description "hi" start on local-filesystems stop on shutdown console log respawn respawn limit 2 5 env DIR=/home/danny env PATH=/sbin:/usr/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/user/bin:/bin expect fork script set -x /usr/bin/mono /home/danny/path-to-my.exe end script
Any/all help is appreciated. I'm a little stumped on this one.
