fbguard(1) start and restart firebid server


fbguard -forever [option...] (default)
fbguard -onetime [option...]


fbguard is the Firebird guardian. It starts Firebird super- or superclassic server and restarts it in case it crashes.


Keep restarting the Firebird server forever. This is the default if no command is given.
The opposite of -forever. Doesn't restart the Firebird server if it crashes.


Detach from the controlling terminal.
-pidfile filename
Write the PID of thee started firebird server to the specified file.
Ignore startup errors. Combining this with -forever can lead to endless loop in case there is some problem that prevents the Firebird server from starting.
