Check the existence of a set of process IDs (potentially) on remote hosts.
Takes a list of remote process IDs. These process IDs are understood to be on the host specified by --host (default is localhost). Alternatively, the host may be overridden by specifying the process IDs in the form <hostname>:<pid>.
The exit value is 0 if all the requested process IDs exist. The exit value is 1 if any of the requested process IDs did not exist, or 2 if any hosts did not have a running daemon. This is roughly the same as kill -0 <pid>.
The following works well for shell scripts.
--help Displays this message and program version and exits. --host Specifies host name to check for a process. --port Specifies the port number to contact the pidstatd on. (default 1752) --silent Do not print out a line per process checked. --debug Turns on the debug flag for diagnostic output. --version Displays program version and exits.
The latest version is available from CPAN and from <http://www.veripool.org/>.
