Additional Software Enhancements

The following additional software feature has been added to the Solaris 10 5/09 release.

SPARC: Fp-scrubber Daemon

The Fp-scrubber is a user-level daemon that periodically runs nonintrusive tests to validate proper functioning of the floating-point unit (FPU) hardware. When an error is detected by the test, a fault management action is initiated by using the fmd(1M) command. The Fp-scrubber daemon supports only UltraSPARC III and UltraSPARC IV class of processors.
