The rpc.rstatd service has been present since the initial release of Solaris.
The rpc.rstatd service was enabled by default in releases up through Solaris 9. In the Solaris 10 through 11.3 releases, the service was enabled under the generic_open.xml service profile, but disabled under the generic_limited_net.xml service profile. In Oracle Solaris 11.4, it is disabled by default.
In releases of Solaris before Solaris 11, the rpc.rstatd service was also used to provide load average data to the OpenWindows and CDE performance meter tools.
