SUNW.Proxy_SMF_failover (7)


SUNW.Proxy_SMF_failover, Proxy_SMF_failover - resource type for proxying failover SMF services.


The SUNW.Proxy_SMF_failover resource type represents the proxy for failover of Service Management Facility (SMF) services.

Standard properties and extension properties that are defined for the SUNW.proxysmffailover resource type are described in the following subsections. To set these properties for an instance of the SUNW.Proxy_SMF_failover resource type, use the clresource command (clresource(8CL)).

Specifies information about the SMF services to be proxied by the resource. Its value is either one or more fmri names for the SMF services to proxy or the path to a file that contains all the proxied SMF services.

  • The preferred method to specify this property is by direct use in the clresource command. If using the fmri name, use the following syntax:

    -x Proxied_service_instances=svc:service-name

    You can specify multiple SMF services in a comma-delimited list. For example:

    -x Proxied_service_instances=svc:/network/ntp:default,svc:/network/dhcp-server:default
  • The use of a file to provide the Proxied_service_instances values is deprecated but still supported. When specifying the property in a file, the property's value is the path to a file that contains all the proxied SMF services. Each line in the file is dedicated to one SMF service and specifies svc fmri and the path to the corresponding service manifest file. For example, if the resource has to manage two services, restarter_svc_test_1:default and restarter_svc_test_2:default, the file must include the following two lines:


    Note -  The entries above must each appear on a single line. They are broken into multiple lines here for legibility.

Default: ""

Tunable: When disabled


This example shows how to register the SUNW.Proxy_SMF_failover resource type, create a resource group for the application, create the failover application resource, manage the resource group, and enable a resource.

Register the resource type:

# clresourcetype -f <path-to-rtrfile> SUNW.Proxy_SMF_failover

Create a resource group called rg1 for the application:

# clresourcegroup create rg1

Create the failover application resource called myfailoverres:

# clresource create -t SUNW.Proxy_SMF_failover -g rg1 \
-x proxied_service_instances="/usr/local/app/svc" myfailoverres

where /usr/local/app/svc is a text file.

Manage the resource group rg1:

# clresourcegroup manage rg1

Enable the myfailoverres resource:

# clresource enable myfailoverres

Use the following command to check the status of the application:

# clresource status
