daemontools

Focus should be on useability and safety.
To answer your questions - just for the records:

1) daemontools are an easy way to ensure that a program is run and restarted where necessary. Nowadays you also find 'runit' which works the same.

2) fine - you can put it somewhere else. 'runit' uses /etc/service

3) besides the fact that you can run qmail using a start-stop daemon, qmail is not exactly state of the art anymore

4) some very big sites are using tinydns. Why do you think that there is a speed problem?

5) yes. It is also possible to use vegadns which is a web based system to maintain tinydns records. Data is stored in a database; exported to tinydns using a shell command.

As djbdns is not open source binary distributions have become available.

daemontools....ach!

1) why using daemon tools if linux has already other tools to lunch daemon and software ?
2) as a sysadmin i neglet to fill my "/" with not standard directories
3) Have You ever got problems trying to stop qmail or a piece of it ? ..(ask google) ..daemontools are simply...too much , sometime.Too much effort to keep daemons running, even when You have to stop them.
4) This is a question: how about speed?
5) Second question: importing zones from bind is possible?

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
