What is the general rule for which daemons should be started up through
inetd? Currently, on my server,
sendmail are set up to run all the time, where simple *NIX services are set up to be started by inetd.
I'm the only one who uses ssh on my computer, and break-in attempts aren't a problem because I have it running on a non-standard port, and my HTTP server gets maybe 5 hits a day that aren't GoogleBot.
My question is, what are the benefits vs. the performance hits associated with running a complex daemon like sshd or apache through a superserver daemon, and what, if any, successes or failures have you had running your own daemons in this manner?
