Subject:   soft restart of a jail
Message-ID:  <>

Hi =E2=80=94

I recently migrated regular jails to VNET jails, and I am pretty much =
pleased about their new opportunities.

During that exercise I ran across the sysutils/iocage jail managment =
system, where I first read about a feature called "soft restart of a =
jail". If I understand it correctly, here one doesn't remove/start a =
jail including its network stack, but one only restarts a jail's =
"content", instead.

I did try to understand iocage's code, but I am unsure whether I got it =
right: previously defined routing is removed, followed by a /bin/sh =
/etc/rc.shutdown and /bin/sh /etc/rc, and finalized by a =
reimplementation of a previously removed routing. (I hope that I got =
that right.)

Here my question: wouldn't a "/bin/sh /etc/rc.shutdown ; /bin/sh =
/etc/rc" be sufficient? Is it necessary to remove/reinstall routing as =

Again: I might be completely misunderstandig the code of iocage, thus my =
questions to those with more knowledge.

Thanks and regards,
