fsmgmtd - SAM-QFS Manager RPC API server process
fsmgmtd is the RPC API (Application Programmer Interface)
server process. After the SUNWsamfs or SUNWqfs package is
installed, this daemon must be manually started by using the
fsmadm(1M) utility, as follows:
fsmadm config -a
The preceding command starts /opt/SUNWsamfs/sbin/fsmgmtd and
adds the fsmgmt.xml file to
To stop the fsmgmtd daemon and disable it in smf, enter the
fsmadm config -n
After the first manual start, fsmgmtd is started by smf.
fsmgmtd(1M) performs the following other actions:
o Registers the server program with rpcbind(1M).
o Initializes the fsmgmt API library to keep track of
changes made to the various configuration files by other
o Maintains a timestamp, which allows multiple clients to
o Keeps a check to note that multiple clients are modifying
the configuration files and sends messages to indicate
o Initializes tracing for the daemon.
Tracing can be enabled by including an entry in
/etc/opt/SUNWsamfs/defaults.conf. The following example
lines enable tracing:
all = on # trace all daemons
fsmgmt = on # enable tracing for fsmgmt
fsmgmt.options = all oprmsg # trace all and oprmsg events
fsmgmt.size = 10M # limit the trace file size to 10M
The trace file is written to
/var/opt/SUNWsamfs/trace/fsmgmt. For more information on
tracing, see the Trace File Controls section in the
defaults.conf(1M) man page.
The messages in the trace file convey information about the
state and progress of the work performed by this daemon.
The messages are primarily used by Sun engineers and support
personnel to improve performance and diagnose problems. As
such, the message content and format are subject to change
with bugfixes and feature releases.
The tracing mechanism is similar to the mechanism used by
other Sun QFS and SAM-QFS daemons. To prevent the trace
files from growing indefinitely, you can implement trace
file rotation. For information on this, see
trace_rotate(1M). You can specify that rotation be
performed when the trace files reach a certain age and size
in the defaults.conf file. For more information, see the
defaults.conf(4) man page.
You can start the fsmgmtd daemon at package installation
time or manually later after the SUNWsamfs or SUNWqfs
package is installed, by entering the following at the
fsmadm config -a
init(1M), rpcbind(1M), fsmadm(1M), trace_rotate(1M).
