salt.modules.runit

runit service module (http://smarden.org/runit)

This module is compatible with the service states, so it can be used to maintain services using the provider argument:

myservice:
  service:
    - running
    - provider: runit

Provides virtual service module on systems using runit as init.

Service management rules (sv command):

service $n is ENABLED if file SERVICE_DIR/$n/run exists service $n is AVAILABLE if ENABLED or if file AVAIL_SVR_DIR/$n/run exists service $n is DISABLED if AVAILABLE but not ENABLED

SERVICE_DIR/$n is normally a symlink to a AVAIL_SVR_DIR/$n folder

Service auto-start/stop mechanism:

sv (auto)starts/stops service as soon as SERVICE_DIR/<service> is created/deleted, both on service creation or a boot time.

autostart feature is disabled if file SERVICE_DIR/<n>/down exists. This does not affect the current's service status (if already running) nor manual service management.

Service's alias:

Service sva is an alias of service svc when AVAIL_SVR_DIR/sva symlinks to folder AVAIL_SVR_DIR/svc. svc can't be enabled if it is already enabled through an alias already enabled, since sv files are stored in folder SERVICE_DIR/svc/.

XBPS package management uses a service's alias to provides service alternative(s), such as chrony and openntpd both aliased to ntpd.
