NAME

       psadwatchd - checks to make sure kmsgsd and psad are running.

SYNOPSIS

       psadwatchd [<config file>]

DESCRIPTION

       psadwatchd  checks  on  an  interval of every five seconds to make sure
       that kmsgsd and psad are running on the box.  If either  of  the  other
       two  daemons  have  died, psadwatchd will restart the daemon and notify
       each  email  address  listed  in  the  EMAIL_ADDRESSES  variable   (see
       /etc/psad/psad.conf)  that  the  daemon has been restarted.  psadwatchd
       uses the psad.conf configuration file which by default  is  located  at
       /etc/psad/psad.conf,  but  a  different  path  can  be specified on the
       command line.
