Process Management Framework

Iridium Communication Ground System

Developed a process management framework that controlled the various processes making up the SMS messaging system. This framework supported the automatic startup/shutdown of processes and managed the dependencies between those processes. This management framework was used to inform operators of the overall state of the system. Additionally, the framework allowed operators to control individual processes via a third party web interface. Since the system was deployed on a two node cluster, it was necessary to make the management framework redundant and transparent to node failures. This was accomplished by launching the framework's processes as primary and backup with transparent failover as node availability dictated.
