Subject: elog dead again 

I found the elog dead again this morning, and the script didn't kill again. I modified the script to use the following line instead of "pkill elogd":

kill `ps -ef | grep elogd | grep -v grep | grep -v start-elog-nodus | awk '{print $2}'`

Hopefully the script will be a bit more robust in the future.



The elog was so dead this time that the restart script didn't work.  I followed the restart-by-hand instructions instead, with success.

 Just for added interest, I tried a different method when the restart script broke.  The "start-elog-nodus" script has a line "kill elogd".  This seems not to be actually killing anything anymore, which means the elog can't restart.  So this time I went for "kill <pid number>", and then ran the startup script.  This worked.  So it's the "kill elogd" which isn't working reliably.
