Stopping the Monitor With Update

The Update method uses pmfadm -q to verify that the monitor is running, and if so kills it with pmfadm -s TERM. If the monitor is successfully terminated, a message to that effect is sent to the administrative user. If the monitor cannot be stopped, Update exits with failure status and sends an error message to the administrative user.

if pmfadm -q $RESOURCE_NAME.monitor; then

# Kill the monitor that is running already
pmfadm -s $PMF_TAG TERM
    if [ $? -ne 0 ]; then
       logger -p ${SYSLOG_FACILITY}.err \
              -t [$SYSLOG_TAG] \
                 "${ARGV0} Could not stop the monitor"
       exit 1
    # could successfully stop DNS. Log a message.
       logger -p ${SYSLOG_FACILITY}.err \
                 "Monitor for HA-DNS successfully stopped"
