smbiod-svc(8)

Name

smbiod, smbiod-svc - SMB client I/O daemon

Synopsis

/usr/lib/smbfs/smbiod
/usr/lib/smbfs/smbiod-svc

Description

smbiod and smbiod-svc are internal components of the SMB client. They have no external, customer-accessible interfaces. For more information about the SMB client, see the mount_smbfs(8) man pages.

smbiod-svc is run by the SMF service, svc:/network/smb/client:default, and starts and manages the smbiod processes that are required by the SMB client.

smbiod is started by smbiod-svc, which runs as a separate process for each user who requests SMB client connections. These smbiod processes continue to run until the owning user no longer has any SMB client connections.
