This system administration feature is new in the Solaris 10 6/06 release.
Starting with this release, the Solaris OS includes a set of predictive self-healing features to automatically capture, diagnose, and respond to hardware errors detected on your system. The self-healing diagnosis results are reported to the syslogd service.
The Solaris Fault Manager, fmd, now enables you to do the following:
Publish diagnostic results through the Solaris System Management Agent (SMA), including SNMP traps
Search an SNMP MIB for fault management information about each machine
The Fault Management MIB is located at /etc/sma/snmp/mibs/SUN-FM-MIB.mib on the Solaris system.
