NAME [Toc] [Back]
icodd - instant Capacity on Demand (iCOD) daemon
SYNOPSIS [Toc] [Back]
DESCRIPTION [Toc] [Back]
icodd is installed and started as part of the iCOD software on all
potential iCOD systems, and re-spawns itself if killed. Note that
other iCOD commands fail if this daemon is not running because the
operations this daemon performs are vital in keeping the complex wide
view of the iCOD state current. The following entry is added to
/etc/inittab (at the bottom) in order to have icodd start and re-spawn
icod:23456:respawn:/usr/lbin/icodd # iCOD daemon
This daemon is not started on hardware that is not supported under the
iCOD program. If icodd is installed and running on a system with iCOD
components (processors, cells, memory) present, it sends daily asset
report e-mail to HP, tracks temporary capacity, sends exception
notifications, and maintains a healthy iCOD state.
For more information about the functions that icodd performs for iCOD
systems, see the iCOD User's Guide located at
The icodd daemon reports errors via syslog (see syslog(3C)).
Exception notification e-mail is sent to root and to the system
contact e-mail address (configured via the icod_modify command (see
The icodd daemon performs periodic operations based on the time of
day. Because the icodd daemon is spawned by init, it gets its
understanding of the current timezone from the /etc/default/tz file.
Ensure that the timezone setting in this file matches the timezone
setting in the TZ environment variable.
