daemontools is a collection of tools for managing Unix services. It was written with a few design goals in mind: Service installation and removal should be easy; the whole application should be portable to different operating systems; services should reliably restart if needed; and everything should use the least privileges necessary. daemontools uses the /service directory to store the configuration of active services and includes some tools to manage the service states and to perform logging of event messages. daemontools is often criticized because it is incompatible with the BSD/SysV service management approach and uses its own logging concepts instead of syslog, but in some cases, it provides a nice alternative for managing services.
