rcapd Configuration

You use the rcapadm command to configure the resource capping daemon. You can perform the following actions:

  • Set the threshold value for cap enforcement

  • Set intervals for the operations performed by rcapd

  • Enable or disable resource capping

  • Display the current status of the configured resource capping daemon

To configure the daemon, you must be the root user or have the required administrative rights.

Configuration changes can be incorporated into rcapd according to the configuration interval (see rcapd Operation Intervals) or on demand by sending a SIGHUP (see the kill(1) man page).

If used without arguments, rcapadm displays the current status of the resource capping daemon if it has been configured.

The following subsections discuss cap enforcement, cap values, and rcapd operation intervals.
