Managing the network-monitor Module

The fmadm command reports the current status of the monitor utility. The status is displayed as active when the utility is performing fault monitoring, as shown in the following example.

# fmadm config

  cpumem-retire            1.1     active  CPU/Memory Retire Agent
  disk-diagnosis           0.1     active  Disk Diagnosis engine
  network-monitor          1.0     active  Network monitor

The /usr/lib/fm/fmd/plugins/network-monitor.conf configuration file has a property called enable that controls the state of the network-monitor. The monitor utility is enabled by default. To disable the monitor, set the enable property in the file to false, as shown in the following example.

# enable
# Enable/disable the network-monitor.
# setprop enable false

The monitor utility will be disabled upon reboot.
