Hello, bit late to this thread, but hey.

Have you looked at djb's daemontools? It's not Ruby, but a bunch of
Unixy C programs that help you do stuff like
* Supervise your process, making sure that it's up when it's supposed
to be up, and down when it's supposed to be down;
* Redirect stdout/stderr to a rolling log file, adding an optional
timestamp to each line along the way
I think it's better not to do any process-management stuff (i.e.
forking, going into the background) in one's own program unless it's
Hope this helps. What does everyone else think?
