Hi. Yes, but I mean something like service kvclient start / stop / restart / status, and using e.g. daemon without nohup. Of course one can be written, e.g. I have a simple one based on a script I found in internet long time ago for Cassandra, but then by Murphy's Law you will probably have an "official" one in the .124 version : - ).
Oh yes, I understand -- something that can be used in (say) /etc/init.d. We don't yet have one. If you happen to write one and would be willing to share it, please send it along to us. You can email me at charles.lamb @ o.com
