Subject: [mythtv-users] Backend Watchdog??


     I'm a dedicated myth fan for nearly two years now.

     My backend system has had several incarnations from Fc3 to Fc6 on two 
different hardware platforms.

    My only issue is that the backend service occasionally dies for no 
aparent reason.  This has been the case in every incarnation to date, 
whatever I try.   It doesnt happen often, but enought to be annoying and 
reduce WAF etc.

    I guess this behaviour is to be expected with any developing software. 
However it strikes me that it would be relatively simple to set up an 
independant process to monitor the status of the backend and kick it back 
into life automatically if it dies.   (ie what I do now manually!)

    I fully accept that the answer to how to do this may be trivial, but I 
am light on linux skills so if someone could help me out I would be very 

many thanks,

Thanks for all the suggestions.   Plenty of options to try!
