Question about configuring scheduled tasks
« on: June 29, 2009, 10:37:31 AM »
Hi,
  I am writing some documents about NeDi for my colleagues. When I wrote install document, I met a question.
  The description in http://www.nedi.ch/ is as follow:
  If you also want to send your Syslog messages and/or your SNMP traps to NeDi you will need to configure the appropirate perl modules. Under Linux you could configure them to run as deamon. The counterpart of a deamon is called a service under Windows.
  Is "deamon" here is spelled wrong? And daemon is right?
  I should tell my colleagues correct messages about nedi.
  Thanks a lot for your help!
  Best regards!

Daemon is correct.

On Microsoft Windows NT systems, programs called services perform the functions of daemons. They run as processes, usually do not interact with the monitor, keyboard, and mouse, and may be launched by the operating system at boot time.

...

However, any Windows application can perform the role of a daemon, not just a service.
