The s6-svdt-clear program
s6-svdt-clear clears the recorded death tally of a service.
s6-svdt-clear clears the recorded death tally of the service being
currently supervised at the servicedir
- 0: success
- 100: wrong usage
- 111: system call failed
- Use of s6-svdt-clear impacts the listings obtained
by the s6-svdt command.
- It also impacts the behaviour of the
s6-permafailon command. This is
the main reason to use s6-svdt-clear: once a service has
failed permanently due to an excessive number of deaths in a given
time, it can be useful to erase that record of deaths before
starting the service again, in order to avoid permanently failing
again too fast.
