NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       utxd  -  Daemon  that  spawns  service daemons used by the
       Asian terminal driver

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]


DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The utxd daemon spawner acts as an  agent  for  the  Asian
       terminal  driver (atty). The utxd daemon spawns other daemons
 that support special services required for Asian language
  input. The service daemons include odld (which supports
 the SoftODL service), kkcd (which supports the KanaKanji
  conversion  method),  and  simd (which supports the
       phrase input method).  This  software  is  available  only
       when  optional  Tru64 UNIX subsets with Asian country support
 are installed on the system.

       By using the select() system call, utxd waits for requests
       from  the  atty  driver.  When a request to spawn a daemon
       for a particular service is received by utxd, it allocates
       a new utx device for use by the spawned daemon.  The newly
       created daemon then talks  directly  to  the  atty  driver
       through the utx device.

       The utxd daemon looks up the location of requested service
       daemon by reading the /var/adm/utx/utxd.conf configuration

ERRORS    [Toc]    [Back]

       By  using the syslog() function, utxd sends error messages
       to the syslog files. Errors can include the following:  no
       ports could be opened


              No  utx device was free, so utxd was unable to open
              one for a requested service.  select count error


              An error occurred when utxd executed  the  select()
              system call.  can't alloc mem


              The  utxd  daemon could not allocate enough memory.
              send error


              An error occurred when utxd  attempted  to  send  a
              reply message.  counter mismatch in receive 0


              A utxd internal error occurred.
