I'm building a docker container with a service X. I would like to restart service X programmatically from other micro-service in other container.

At the moment, we developed a small Flask app that is executed as entry-point and at the startup this app executes the service X and saves the PID. The, Flask exposes and endpoint and when this endpoint is called it executes kill command and starts again service X.

Is there any better way to accomplish this?
