I'm having an odd problem. I have a server process that gets started with nohup, and persists across logout and re-login just fine. However if I leave myself logged in and then get the "broken pipe" message because my laptop went to sleep I come back to find that the process stopped at approximately the time my laptop went to sleep (hard to verify exactly when that was though). This happens even if I have logged out and logged back in since starting the process.
Why does this happen? I had thought nohup meant it would ignore SIGHUP? Is some other signal being sent? I am aware of screen, but is there a way to avoid this without resorting to running things in screen (which was the previous solution we just moved away from)?
The command in the script that starts the process looks like this...
nohup attivio -cmd start -nodump -project="$ATTIVIO_PROJECT" -node $NODENAME $ATTIVIO_ARGS foo.xml 2>&1 > $LOG_DIR/attivio.console.log &
The script was invoked like this:
