Logging with Start stop daemon


Hey,

I wrote a script to start an algorithm on one of my database machines. After some tweaking I have gotten the Start, stop, restart, and reload to function fine. My problem is that with the start stop daemon, the logging of stdout and stderr logs that of SSD, not what I am executing. Is there a way to log the execute commands output? Below is the script to save time in anyone needing to ask. Thanks.

#!/bin/sh

#Script to start and stop algorithm control

NAME=algorithm_control
PIDFILE=/var/run/$NAME.pid

export JAVA_HOME=/usr/share/java/j2sdk1.4.2_05/bin
export CLASS_PATH=/usr/local/digonex/lib
export POSTGRESQL_PATH=/usr/share/java

SSD=`which start-stop-daemon`

export login_name=******
export login_password=******
mapserver_IP="digsecdb"

START="$JAVA_HOME/java"
PARAMETERS="-cp $POSTGRESQL_PATH/postgresql.jar:$CLASS_PATH/AlgorithmControl.jar:$CLASS_PATH/DTISoapClient.jar AlgorithmControl.AlgorithmControl $login_name $login_password $mapserver_IP >> /var/log/algorithm_control.log 2>&1"

case "$1" in
'start')
echo "Starting up the $NAME"

#`$START` >> /var/log/algorithm_control.log 2>&1 &

$SSD --start --make-pidfile --pidfile $PIDFILE --background --exec $START -- $PARAMETERS
;;

'stop')
echo "Stopping the $NAME"
kill -s INT `cat $PIDFILE`
;;

'restart')
echo -n "Restarting $NAME"
kill -s INT `cat $PIDFILE`
sleep 3
i=go

while [ "$i" = go ]
do

ps aux | grep -v restart | grep [a]lgorithm > /root/algorithm_tmp.log

if [ -s /root/algorithm_tmp.log ]; then

sleep 5

else

$SSD --start --make-pidfile --pidfile $PIDFILE --background --exec $START -- $PARAMETERS
i=""

fi

rm /root/algorithm_tmp.log
done
;;

'reload')
echo -n "Reloading Algorithm"
kill -s HUP `cat $PIDFILE`
;;

*)
echo "Usage: /etc/init.d/algorithm {start|stop|restart}"
exit 1
;;
esac

exit 0


Any help on getting this to log the executed command would help me immensly. Thanks a lot.
