Daemon to watch service


My IMAPd daemon keeps dying every now and then and I haven't been able to figure out why. This interrupts mail acess which is making users quite irritable. Is there a script/daemon out there that monitors that the imap service has died and starts it? For now I have put a crontab entry but want to be more accurate. Its being started by /etc/init.d/inetutils-inetd.

This is a ubuntu-server box

It's a bit archaic and obscure but it works pretty well once you figure it out.

I have not used it in a long time so I am not much help in setting it up. It is popular with the qmail crowd.
