Hi,

other rc scripts for services use daemon(8) with "-r" to recover from daemon crashes automatically without requiring admin intervention.

Today our unbound resolver (v1.10) crashed but since unbound does not make use of daemon it stayed down until we started it manually - which is worse than it could be.

Please add daemon to unbound's rc script to recover from crashes automatically.

for an example on how to use daemon:

Ah, forgot abut this feature request.

It would actually be more beneficial to find out why unbound-s crashing. I'm not sure whether it is a good idea to blindly restart a crashing process. Let me thonk about this.
