NAME

       collectdmon - Monitoring daemon for collectd

SYNOPSIS

       collectdmon [options] [-- collectd options]

DESCRIPTION

       collectdmon is a small "wrapper" daemon which starts and monitors the collectd daemon. If
       collectd terminates it will automatically be restarted, unless collectdmon was told to
       shut it down.

OPTIONS

       collectdmon supports the following options:

       -c <path>
           Specify the pathname of the collectd binary. You may either specify an absolute path
           or simply the name of the binary in which case the PATH variable will be searched for
           it. The default is "collectd".

       -P <pid-file>
           Specify the pid file. The default is "/var/run/collectdmon.pid".

       -h  Output usage information and exit.

       collectd options
           Specify options that are passed on to collectd. If it is not already included, -f will
           be added to these options. See collectd(1).

SIGNALS

       collectdmon accepts the following signals:

       SIGINT, SIGTERM
           These signals cause collectdmon to terminate collectd, wait for its termination and
           then shut down.

       SIGHUP
           This signal causes collectdmon to terminate collectd, wait for its termination and
           then restart it.
