Launching Server Companion upon Shutdown

The SIGNAL_DOWN keyword provides the ability to launch a customer executable when the FairCom Server comes down. This keyword takes as its argument the name of an executable that will be launched when the FairCom Server has been successfully terminated. See SIGNAL_DOWN in FairCom DB Configuration Options for additional information.

This option could be used to launch a backup utility, to re-launch the server, or to execute a batch/shell script to perform actions that can only be performed while the server is inoperative.
