Howdy Mayur, thanks! Checking the status of the parent process is certainly something that can be done, but that's only possible in an ideal situation. Developing a service network in a decoupled way, can increase fault tolerance and scalability. When developing for reliability, you want to reduce the damage that could be caused by a catastrophic failure. That is where detached processes can really shine. If a service network is built in this way, then you could easily remove/add/upgrade any individual services and the network as a whole would continue to function properly with little to no data-loss or effect to the end user.

Cheers!
