Automated reboots due to shutdown - A theoretical issue
First of all Digital Ocean is perfect for my few clients.... and I have finally migrated everything from Linode.
I have all my applications monitored and automated (e.g. if a process dies or goes out of control it's restarted / all services and bespoke apps are restarted on reboot). Basically I want my systems to monitor and "fix" themselves.
One potential issue I don't see a work around for is.... what if the server shutdown for X reason (not done on purpose - maybe a kernel panic)? Do you have automated reboots like Linode with Lassie? Or an alternative suggestion?
