"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.

[tye]: that is what getlogin() certainly *used* to do. I don't believe that is what it certainly should do.
[davido]: /var/run/utmp is 664 i think.
[tye]: Note that my "man getlogin" says that it uses stdin when it should use /dev/tty (calling a glibc bug). But that does not appear to be the case when I test it. But maybe Perl's getlogin() is not using glibc's getlogin().
[oiskuu]: well, run a strace and see what the getlogin does for you.... As I said. SELinux probably has those security labels. But not regular linux.
[tye]: for example, read https://unix. questions/146138/ loginuid-should-be -allowed-to-change -or-not-mutable-or -not
[tye]: I'm not using SELinux and it certainly appears to disagree with you. shrug
[tye]: Since you brought up /proc, oiskuu, I didn't see you respond to my suggestion of 'loginuid'. Does your /proc not have such?
