Description Oleksii Samorukov freebsd_committer 2005-10-25 09:10:13 UTC

Now "status" and "restart" command will not work correctly in exilog.sh rc script. This is because of 2 reasons:
1) By default exilog daemon change process name, so rc.subr functions dont beleive that exilog process is a owner of the pidfile. This can be changed in the exilog.conf ('use_pretty_names' => 'no')
2) exilog_agent.pl is a perl script, so we need to add string command_interpreter=/usr/bin/perl.

Fix: # diff -u exilog.sh.ori exilog.sh 

# /usr/local/etc/rc.d/exilog.sh start
# /usr/local/etc/rc.d/exilog.sh status
you will get a message "exilog is not running"

After this patch we dont need special action for the "stop" command, so 
here is a corrected diff:
