Is it posible to daemonize Linspector?

No. Linspector is an interactive software which provides a terminal based frontend called Lish for maintenance tasks. Daemonizing makes no sense. Maybe daemonizing will be added in the future. Just start Linspector in a screen or tmux session and detach. This is how we are doing it.

Will Linspector provide a RPC interface for management?

Yes. Linspector will provide a JSON-RPC based interface.

Is a web interface planned in Linspector?

No. Linspector will not provide a web interface for management. BTW, there will be a seperate project called WebLin which provides a web interface for Linspector. WebLin will make use of the JSON-RPC interface provided by Linspector.


I got "error: can't start new thread" in Lish. What happened?

The Error looks like this:

Exception in thread APScheduler:
