NAME
       fixproc - Fixes a process by performing the specified action.

SYNOPSIS
       fixproc  [-min  n] [-max n] [-check | -kill | -restart | -exist | -fix]
       proc ...

DESCRIPTION
       Fixes a process named "proc" by performing the specified  action.   The
       actions  can  be  check,  kill,  restart, exist, or fix.  The action is
       specified on the command line or is read from a default database, which
       describes  the  default  action to take for each process.  The database
       format and the meaning of each action are described below.

OPTIONS
       -min n minimum number of processes that should be running, defaults  to
              1

       -max n maximum  number of processes that should be running, defaults to
              1

       -check check process against database /local/etc/fixproc.conf.

       -kill  kill process, wait 5 seconds, kill -9 if still exist

       -restart
              kill process, wait 5 seconds, kill -9 if still exist, then start
              again

       -exist checks if proc exists in ps && (min <= num. of processes <= max)

       -fix   check  process against database /local/etc/fixproc.conf. Perform
              defined action, if check fails.
