Managing System Services

You manage services in the system through the Oracle Solaris SMF feature. SMF also defines actions that can be invoked on a service. For reference, see Managing System Services in Oracle Solaris 11.4.

The guide explains concepts, capabilities, and components of the Oracle Solaris SMF. It also describes how to use the different commands of the feature, such as svcadm and svccfg. These commands enable you to display information about services, or to start and stop services.
