In that case, monitoring By2 and the RDBMS processes with software such
as MMonit, would increase reliability and minimize risk of data loss in
the db.

I really like DJ.B's daemontools for it's robustness but it's not as
easy do deploy and don't have very few monitoring options except the PID.

Is there any roadmap or planned release date for 1.10? I'm eager to know
more about new features and improvements in the next release :-)

You and firnsy are doing a great job.

I'm not sure if there is any specific By2 list I better subscribe to?
