grmd - graphics resource manager daemon
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.
/usr/lbin/grmd grmd executable
/var/spool/sockets directory created to contain the grmd and
other UNIX domain sockets
