 kcmond(1M)                                                       kcmond(1M)

 NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
      kcmond - EMS Kernel Tunable Monitor daemon

 SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

 DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
      The kcmond daemon monitors the consumption of kernel resources. It is
      an Event Monitoring Services (EMS - see ems(5)) monitor. The data
      collected by kcusage can be displayed by kcusage(1M).

      kcmond includes a resource dictionary file
      (/etc/opt/resmon/dictionary/kcmond_01.dict) which is used by EMS to
      identify resources for monitoring.

      Users can control the monitoring of each kernel tunable by setting a
      percentage value for the consumption of that resource. For example, if
      the user sets a value of 75 for nproc, the Kernel Tunable Monitor will
      report an event when the number of processes reaches 75% of the nproc

      The kcalarm(1M) command is used to add, modify and delete kernel
      tunable alarms. The kcusage(1M) command is used to view data collected
      by kcmond. The kcweb(1M) command provides a Web-based, graphical user
      interface to control alarms and view usage data, including graphs of
      the usage data.

      kcmond is a light weight daemon that will exit after being idle for
      ten minutes.

      For a complete list of the kernel tunables that can be monitored with
      this daemon, see the kcusage(1M) manpage.

 DEPENDENCIES    [Toc]    [Back]
      kcmond must be run by the registrar process of the Event Monitoring
      Service (EMS) and is not designed to be run from the command line.
