[erlang-questions] Supervisor behaviour query

Wed Nov 12 16:02:43 CET 2008

Hi all,

I have setup a supervisor structure as such:

Supervisor (Node A)  -> Supervisor (Node B) -> WorkerA
                                                                -> WorkerB
                                                                -> WorkerC

I boot my app and the supervision tree starts all the processes and I can see the dependency tree when I fire up appmon as expected.

When however I kill a worker via appmon the supervisor does not attempt to restart the killed process.

Am I missing something? Does a supervisor not attempt to restart a process which has been killed purposely? (I am using one_for_one)
