"lsof | grep DEL | grep /usr" shows any opened but deleted file
which is the case after updfates while applications are running

hence that is what i use on a infrastructure with around 20
Fedora servers to decide which services needs restarts or it
is worth to reboot which is hadrly the case except after kernel-updates

instead going the easy windows-way and say "ok, you have to reboot"
it would be more worth to optimize the handling *after* updates
without reboot and let the user decie wichi services are needed
to restart

yes i am strictly against "restart services after updates" why i
build any server related package by myself since years because
i know the impact of a update and most time a blind restart
at a random moment has more bad impact

[root at buildserver:~]$ cat /buildserver/
#!/usr/bin/bash "/usr/sbin/lsof | grep DEL | grep /usr"

[root at buildserver:~]$ cat /buildserver/
source /Volumes/dune/buildserver/server-list.txt
function rh_run_command
 echo -e "\e[32m$1\e[0m"
 /usr/bin/ssh root@$1 "$2"
 echo ""
 echo -e "\e[31m--------------------------------------------------------------------------\e[0m"
 echo ""
if [ "$2" == "" ]
 echo "" > /dev/null
 echo "Put your params in quotes"
for item in ${RH_TARGET_SERVERS[*]}
  rh_run_command $item "$1"
