in reply to to write /etc/init.d/ntpd start

Consider also using Nagios, which can handle software events ... or, simply configure this service to auto-restart.   A “one-of-a-kind” Perl script ought not be required to get this done.

    "Consider also using Nagios..."

    No doubt, Nagios is good stuff, but i wonder how this hint is related to the OP.

    What oikool needs is $? >> 8, isn't it?

    Without $? >> 8 he can't neither monitor that service nor restart it.

    "...simply configure this service to auto-restart. A “one-of-a-kind” Perl script ought not be required to get this done."

    Nope. Nagios can't be simply configured to restart a service. One needs to write an event handler.

    You need two scripts to accomplish this: one for the service check and one for the event handler.

    And setting up a robust solution for this is still a bit tricky. See State Types a.s.o.

    Best regards, Karl
