I just heard about Daemontools which is a suite of
programs that gives you various control over long
running daemon processes. Of particular use include
"supervise" which monitors processes and restarts
them if they die. It also responds to administrative
requests to stop, start, or restart processes under
it's control. There are other possibly useful
programs in the suite as well.
