Managing Dynamic Resource Pools

The dynamic resource pools service is managed by the service management facility (SMF) under the service identifier svc:/system/pools/dynamic.

Administrative actions on this service, such as enabling, disabling, or requesting restart, can be performed using the svcadm command. The service's status can be queried using the svcs command. See the svcs(1) andsvcadm(8) man pages for more information.

    The SMF interface is the preferred method for controlling dynamic resource pools, but for backward compatibility, the following methods can also be used:

  • If dynamic resource allocation is not required, the poold daemon can be stopped with the SIGQUIT or the SIGTERM signal. Either of these signals causes the daemon to terminate gracefully.

  • Although the poold daemon will automatically detect changes in the resource or pools configuration, you can also force a reconfiguration to occur by using the SIGHUP signal.
