NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       smsd - The SysMan Station daemon

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]


OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Runs smsd as a daemon. This creates a separate process and
       redirects output to the smsd log files.

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The SysMan Station is a client-server application consisting
  of  a  daemon (smsd) and the SysMan Station graphical
       user interface (sysman_station(8)).   The  SysMan  Station
       provides the ability to monitor and manage a single system
       or a TruCluster system.  The smsd  server  is  responsible
       for  gathering  system  management  data from the host and
       presenting that information to the SysMan Station  client.
       SysMan  Station management data is collected from the following
  sources:  Desktop  Management  (DMI)  -   software
       related management data Common Hardware - hardware related
       management data Event Management (EVM) -  event  data  SMS
       data files - SMS configuration data

RESTRICTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       You must have root privileges to run this command.

EXAMPLES    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  following example shows how to run the System Management
 Station daemon: /sbin/init.d/smsd start The following
       explains how to terminate and restart the daemon:

              A  System  Management  Station daemon should not be
              terminated when active client connections exist. To
              test  for  active  connections to a daemon, use the
              following command: netstat -a | grep 596

              If there are no active clients, the resulting  output
       looks       like      the      following:
              tcp  0    0    *.596          *.*       LISTEN

              The output should have no more than a  single  line
              with  *.596  in  the fourth column, which indicates
              the listening port for the daemon.

              If there are active clients, the  resulting  output
              looks  like the following: tcp       0    0    system1.domain.com.596
              tcp       0    0    system2.domain.com.2592    system1.domain.com.596
              tcp       0    0    *.596          *.*       LISTEN

              In  the latter example, an active client connection
              is indicated in the first line  of  output  by  its
              address, system1.domain.com, which is appended with
              the listening port of the  daemon,  596.  The  system2.domain.com
 does not have an address indicating
              a port of  596,  and  is  not  relevant  here.  The
              clients  should  be terminated prior to termination
              of the daemon. An attempt  to  restart  the  daemon
              fails  if such a connection is active. To terminate
              the daemon on a system (or  cluster  member),  execute:
 /sbin/init.d/smsd stop

              In  a cluster environment, there may be an occasion
              to restart the daemons.  In such a case, the daemon
              on  each  node  of  the cluster must be terminated.
              After termination of all System Management  Station
              daemons,  internal  data files should be cleared by
              executing the following command in  superuser  mode
              (this need be done only once, from any cluster member):
 rm -rf /var/cluster/sms/*/*

              After the data files have been removed, the  System
              Management  Station  daemon for each cluster member
              may be started (previously described).
