evmreload - Reload Event Manager configuration files
/usr/sbin/evmreload [-d] [-a] [-c] [-l] [-n]
Reconfigures the EVM channel manager. Reconfigures the
EVM daemon. Reconfigures the EVM logger. Syntax checks
the event template files and reports errors, but does not
make any changes effective. If a daemon reconfiguration
is requested, the reconfiguration request will be sent
even if there are errors in any template file. If errors
exist, there is no guarantee that the new configuration
will be accepted.
The evmreload command posts control events that instruct
EVM resident components to reload their configuration
files. It should be run to cause EVM to begin using the
new configuration any time a configuration file has been
If no options are specified, the daemon, the channel manager,
and the logger all reload their configurations.
The daemon should be reconfigured any time its configuration
file or event template database has changed. The logger
should be reconfigured anytime its configuration has
changed. The channel manager should be reconfigured anytime
its configuration has changed.
Resident EVM components also reload their configuration
files on receipt of a SIGHUP signal.
If an activity monitor is specified in the EVM daemon configuration
file, all counts and timers associated with the
monitor are reset.
The evmreload command uses the evminfo -verify command to
check for errors in configuration files before sending a
reload request to EVM. If errors are found, they are
reported to stderr and no reconfiguration request is sent.
This check does not find all possible errors, however, so
you should take care to check for errors reported by the
EVM components themselves. To do this, run the following
command: evmget -A -f '[name *.evm] & [age < 5m]' -t
You must be user root to run this command.
The following command will cause the EVM daemon to reconfigure
itself: /usr/sbin/evmreload -d The following command
will cause the EVM logger to reconfigure itself:
/usr/sbin/evmreload -l The following command will cause
the EVM channel manager to reconfigure itself:
/usr/sbin/evmreload -c To syntax check the daemon configuration
file without any reconfiguration actually occurring,
enter the following command: /usr/sbin/evmreload -n
To reconfigure both the EVM daemon and the EVM logger,
enter the following command: /usr/sbin/evmreload -d -l To
reconfigure the EVM daemon, the EVM logger, and the EVM
channel manager, enter the following command:
/usr/sbin/evmreload The following command will reconfigure
the EVM daemon, the EVM logger, and the EVM channel manager
even if there are errors in the template file.
The following exit values are returned: Successful completion.
An error occurred.
