screen command in startup bash script - why?
I have been using Linux for a number of years, but still see my self as a novice.
While working with a server, trying to reduce CPU load I stumbled a cross a script executed at boot.
The bash script starts a program in a detached screen (screen -D -m -S <program command incl. otption>). The program is a key process to the server, but does not need to be run in a detached screen.
I can see the benefit if I want to see the process running (doing it's stuff) but because I am trying to reduce load I see no reason during "production".
What other purpose can there be for doing this?
