I have a few questions about running the build agent on linux boxes.
1. What is the recommended way to start the agent? I started it using
nohup, but that leads to an extremely large nohup.out file. If I just
run it in a shell, then I have to keep that shell alive. Are there
plans to make the agent run as a daemon?
2. What is the recommended way to stop the agent? The only way I could
think to stop it is by finding all the processes it spawned and killing
them (using pkill).
3. My linux agent has been idle since I started it up a few weeks ago,
and yet it had spawned over 50 processes. Why would that be?
