I have an application binary configured to start on system startup by appropriately setting the inittab as follows:
pm:3:respawn:/usr/local/lr/active/system/active-package/bin/process_monitor &> /var/log/proc_mon.log
However, what I observe is that there is considerable delay in the process, 'process_monitor' getting started. It takes around 5 to 10 minutes for the start after system has become functional.
What could be the reason?
The system is RHEL 5.5. Kernel : 126.96.36.199
