You can use systemd to start/stop the services and also automatically restart them if they crash. Systemd in most cases is available for recent linux systems (Debian/Ubuntu/RedHat..).


Here is an example for multiple kea instances on a single server: https://gist.github.com/Skywalker-11/4911124c99a39572ade4065743bd3a54 

If you only use one instance of each kea service you can use: https://gist.github.com/Skywalker-11/29ab856ed3c88f0eadc6e833f32fa78a

I am using Centos 7.  Speaking of which, did I overlook something…. Because the RPM I found is for the 1.0.0 version.

That depends on your operating system.  On FreeBSD, it includes the proper rc scripts to start and stop automatically.


We use Monit to alert and restart if the process dies.

Is there any way to get Kea to automatically start when a server reboots and any way to get the Kea to automatically start if it crashes?


I was going to try to write a script for when a server reboots as well as another script for when Kea crashes, but wanted to get input from others.
