This IBM Redbooks publication describes how to write reliable AIX daemons. It covers the
reasons for having high reliability in the daemon processes, and it describes
techniques for achieving the required reliability through using a standard
set of routines that remove many reliability considerations from the concerns
of the person who writes the daemon. The document includes discussions of
how the required reliability is achieved when the daemons are controlled by
the various resources available to perform the control task in AIX.
This book is valuable for administrators, program designers, and daemon
writers who need to originate or understand daemon logic.
Several practical examples are presented as implementations of the techniques
described. Examples of using standard routines to achieve the required
reliability are provided.
The book assumes the reader is familiar with UNIX commands, UNIX system calls
and C language programming. Some knowledge of network programming is also
