NAME [Toc] [Back]
krsd - kernel registry services daemon
SYNOPSIS [Toc] [Back]
krsd [-i] [-d seconds]
DESCRIPTION [Toc] [Back]
krsd saves data, flagged as persistent in the core kernel KRS tree, to
files on disk. These files are read when the system is booted, in
order to restore the aforementioned persistent data.
When running in daemon mode, krsd sleeps, waking periodically to check
if any persistent data have changed since the last save. If
persistent data have changed, the new state of the data is saved to
disk. Otherwise, krsd sleeps for another period of time and then
repeats the process.
When running in one time (non-daemon) mode, krsd unconditionally saves
persistent data to disk and then exits.
Normally, krsd is executed in daemon mode by init(1M). The
/etc/inittab entry for krsd will cause krsd to be respawned
automatically if it is terminated.
krsd uses the syslog message logging facility to log all krsd
Persistent KRS data are maintained in files based on the class of the
data in question. Currently, the following classes are recognized:
Data that apply to the system in general, regardless of what
configuration is booted. This data is saved in the file
Data specific to a given bootable configuration. This data
is saved in the file config.krs.
Options [Toc] [Back]

-1 One time mode, unconditionally save persistent data to
