    User          => 'kesteb',
    Group         => 'users',
    Directory     => '/',
    Priority      => 0,
    StartWaitSecs => 10,
    StartRetries  => 5,
    StopSignal    => 'TERM',
    StopWaitSecs  => 10,
    StopRetries   => 5,
    ReloadSignal  => 'HUP',
    Autostart     => TRUE,
    AutoRestart   => TRUE,
    Supervisor    => 'Controller',
    Logfile       => '/dev/stdout',
    ExitCodes     =>  '0,1',
    Environment   => 'item=value;;item2=value2'

  StartWaitSecs => 5
StopSignal

The signal to send when trying to stop the process. A string value. It should be in a format that Perl understands.

 Example:
  StopSignal => 'TERM'

How many times to try and stop the process before issuing a KILL signal. An integer value.

 Example:
  StopRetries => 5
StopWaitSecs

The number of seconds to wait between attempts to stop the process. A intger value.

 Example:
  StopWaitSecs => 10
ReloadSignal

The signal to use to attempt a "reload" on the process. A string value. It should in a format that Perl understands.

 Example:
  ReloadSignal => 'HUP'
