4.5 Managing processes

Cfagent allows you to check for the existence of processes on your system, send those processes signals (such as kill) and perhaps restart those processes. Typical applications for this are sending `cron' and `inetd' the HUP signal, after editing their configuration files, or killing unwanted processes (such as user programs which hog the system at peak usage times).

You can read more about this in the reference section .
