if (system(@args1) != 0) { logEntry ("No is running, attempting to re +start"); $repeater; }

I don't think that's doing what you think it does. As far as I can tell the bare $repeater doesn't do anything. You probably want something like

if (system(@args1) != 0) { logEntry ("No is running, attempting to re +start"); $repeater = Proc::Background->new('/etc/squid/repeater +/lib/'); }

Also, Proc::Background has functions for checking whether or not the process is still running, so you may want to use those instead of shelling out to pgrep:

if (!$repeater->alive()) { logEntry ("No is running, attempting to re +start"); $repeater = Proc::Background->new('/etc/squid/repeater +/lib/'); }

Of course that would not detect a process that was already started when your watcher begins. (But in that case you'd currently have 2 running processes anyway since you unconditionally start one with the initial Proc::Background->new call.)

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
