NAME

       cdist-type__process - Start or stop process

DESCRIPTION

       This cdist type allows you to define the state of a process.

OPTIONAL PARAMETERS

       state
           Either "present" or "absent", defaults to "present"

       name
           Process name to match on when using pgrep -f -x.

               This is useful, if the name starts with a "/",
               because the leading slash is stripped away from
               the object id by cdist.

       stop
           Executable to use for stopping the process.

       start
           Executable to use for starting the process.

EXAMPLES

           # Start if not running
           __process /usr/sbin/syslog-ng --state present

           # Start if not running with a different binary
           __process /usr/sbin/nginx --state present --start "/etc/rc.d/nginx start"

           # Stop the process using kill (the type default) - DO NOT USE THIS
           __process /usr/sbin/sshd --state absent

           # Stop the process using /etc/rc.d/sshd stop - THIS ONE NOT AS WELL
           __process /usr/sbin/sshd --state absent --stop "/etc/rc.d/sshd stop"

           # Ensure cups is running, which runs with -C ...:
           __process cups --start "/etc/rc.d/cups start" --state present \
              --name "/usr/sbin/cupsd -C /etc/cups/cupsd.conf"

           # Ensure rpc.statd is running (which usually runs with -L) using a regexp
           __process rpcstatd --state present --start "/etc/init.d/statd start" \
               --name "rpc.statd.*"
