 NAME
      grmd - graphics resource manager daemon

 SYNOPSIS
      grmd

 DESCRIPTION
      The grmd program manages shared resources among cooperating  X  Window
      System  servers  and  Starbase  processes.  The grmd receives requests
      from these  client  programs,  processes	the  requests,	and  returns
      results  to  the	clients.   The resources managed by the grmd include
      allocation of objects from a shared memory segment  and  from  display
      frame buffer offscreen memory.

      Grmd is invoked automatically by the  X  Window  System  and  Starbase
      processes.   When invoked the grmd creates a shared memory segment and
      a semaphore during its initialization.  The grmd is installed  to	 run
      as user daemon so that it may reliably remove the semaphore.

      The grmd communicates with its clients via a UNIX domain socket.	 The
      grmd creates the socket in the directory /var/spool/sockets.

 FILES
      /usr/lbin/grmd	       grmd executable
      /var/spool/sockets       directory created to  contain  the  grmd	 and
			       other UNIX domain sockets
