svc(8)			    System Manager's Manual			svc(8)

       svc - controls services monitored by supervise(8).

       svc [ -+=Ll12udopchaitkwxq ] services

       services	 consists  of  any number of arguments,	each argument naming a
       directory used by supervise(8).

       svc applies all the options to each service in turn.

       -=     Send all subsequent signals to the parent	process	instead	of its
	      process group. This is the default.

       -+     Send  all	subsequent signals to the entire process group instead
	      of just the parent process.

       -L     Send all subsequent signals to the running log  process,	if  it

       -l     (default)	Send all subsequent signals to the main	process.  This
	      may be useful for	controlling both a log and main	process	in one
	      shot or avoiding race conditions after using -L.

       -u     Up.  If  the  service  is	 not running, start it.	If the service
	      stops, restart it.

       -d     Down. If the service is running, send it a TERM signal and  then
	      a	CONT signal. After it stops, do	not restart it.

       -o     Once. If the service is not running, start it. Do	not restart it
	      if it stops.

       -p     Pause. Send the service a	STOP signal.

       -c     Continue.	Send the service a CONT	signal.

       -h     Hangup. Send the service a HUP signal.

       -a     Alarm. Send the service an ALRM signal.

       -i     Interrupt. Send the service an INT signal.

       -t     Terminate. Send the service a TERM signal.

       -k     Kill. Send the service a KILL signal.

       -q     Quit. Send the service a QUIT signal.

       -1     User 1. Send the service a USR1 signal.

       -2     User 2. Send the service a USR2 signal.

       -w     Window resize.  Send the service a WINCH signal.

       -x     Exit.  supervise(8) will exit as soon as the service is down. If
	      you  use	this option on a stable	system,	you're doing something
	      wrong; supervise(8) is designed to run forever.

	      If set, the named	directory is used instead of supervise for the
	      status  information  and	control	files.	If $SUPERVISEDIR is an
	      absolute path, it	is suffixed  with  the	path  to  s  with  all
	      slashes ("/") replaced with colons (":").

       supervise(8), svok(8), svstat(8), svscanboot(8),	svscan(8), readprocti-
       tle(8), fghack(8), pgrphack(8), multilog(8), tai64n(8), tai64nlocal(8),
