We're running a 3rd party TTY service on our servers, to support some thin clients manufactured by the 3rd party.
From time to time, connection to a thin client can get locked up. Procedure is to stop the TTY service, wait for connections to close, start the TTY service. Additionally on CentOS 4.x servers the command
Normally we do this manually like this, from root.
service axtty stop
Stop the service
netstat -d | grep axel
Run and monitor the netstat command until all connections are closed, ie. No lines containing
service axtty start
Start the service
Is there a way to sum all that up in a single automated shell script (bash)?
Servers are CentOS 4.x or 6.x
