SAC Initialization Process

The following steps summarize what happens when SAC is first started:

  1. The SAC program is started by the SMF service, svc:/system/sac:default.

  2. The SAC program reads /etc/saf/_sysconfig, the per-system configuration script.

  3. The SAC program reads /etc/saf/_sactab, the SAC administrative file.

  4. The SAC program forks a child process for each port monitor it starts.

  5. Each port monitor reads /etc/saf/pmtag/_config, the per-port monitor configuration script.
