NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       envmond - Environmental Monitoring daemon

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]


DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       Environmental  Monitoring  provides  a  means of detecting
       system  threshold  conditions,  that  if  exceeded,  could
       result  in  a loss of data or damage to the system itself.
       Using the envmond daemon, thresholds levels can be checked
       and  corrective action can ensue before any damage occurs.

       The envmond daemon performs  the  following:  Queries  the
       system  for  exceeded threshold levels.  Broadcasts a message
 to users warning of high threshold conditions or  fan
       and  power supply failure, and suggests corrective action.
       Sends a message to users when a high temperature condition
       has  been  resolved.   Notifies  all users that an orderly
       shutdown is to be initiated if recovery is not possible.

       To enable Environmental  Monitoring,  the  envmond  daemon
       must  be  started  during the system boot. Before starting
       Environmental Monitoring, a system check is performed.  If
       the  system  hardware does not support Environmental Monitoring,
 the envmond daemon is not started.

       You can customize, start,  and  stop  the  envmond  daemon
       using  the  envconfig  utility.  For more information, see
       the envconfig reference page.

       Some recent computer systems feature multiple sensors  for
       environmental  monitoring.  On  those  systems,  the hwmgr
       utility  is  used  to  set  and  read  individual   sensor
       attribute  values  (  including thresholds) and to specify
       actions to undertake when these thresholds are reached.
