Most binaries i.e. httpd, memcached, mysqld, etc... provide a config file or cli option to provide the path to a pid file.


Like you say - I can't find anything in rc.subr that would create a pid. So, I looked in /etc/rc.d/ntpd (for example), and I still can't find in there where it might create a pid.

In the case of ntpd, the default arguments look like this:

  /usr/sbin/ntpd -p /var/run/ntpd.pid ...

...so the ntpd process creates the pidfile.
