Ticket #363 (closed task: worksforme)
OS-X: how does one use launchd to start a buildbot?
|Reported by:||warner||Owned by:||warner|
'regener' recently changed the UsingLaunchd page with the following comment:
- Just simplifying a bit. You don't need to kick the twisted process off, once set up, you can just specify buildbot directly.
I'm not sure this is true.. I was under the impression whatever launchd runs needs to *not* daemonize. Otherwise launchd thinks that the process-for-which-it-is-responsible has exited, and ought to be restarted.
Rather than put a discussion in the UsingLaunchd wiki page itself, I figured we could use a ticket for the conversation.
regener: with the change to 'buildbot start' that you describe, do you see evidence in the Console.app logs that launchd is continually restarting the process?
