I got this script and modified a little as my requiremnet. This is very help
full and running fine with me, if any body need it for securing his service.
First edit crontab by following command:
and add following line in crontab:
0,5,10,15,20,25,30,35,40,45,50,55 * * * * /root/send.sh
copy this script in /root/send.sh
# see if the service if running
COUNT=`ps waux |grep -v grep|grep -c sendmail`
# if the service if running quit
if [ $COUNT != 0 ]
echo $COUNT " is o.k. exiting..."
# if the service is not running...
echo "sendmail is down on server... Restarting...."
# politely stop and start the service
# e-page someone so they will know there was a problem
cat /root/problem.msg |mail -s "sendmail down on your system"
