 NAME
      rstatd - kernel statistics server

 SYNOPSIS
      /usr/lib/netsvc/rstat/rpc.rstatd [-l log_file] [-e|-n]

 DESCRIPTION
      rstatd is an RPC server that returns performance statistics obtained
      from the kernel.	The rup utility prints this information (see
      rup(1)).

      inetd invokes rstatd through /etc/inetd.conf (see inetd(1M)).

    Options
      rstatd recognizes the following options and command-line arguments:

	   -l log_file	  Log any errors to the named log file, log_file.
			  Errors are not logged if the -l option is not
			  specified.

			  Information logged to the file includes date and
			  time of the error, the host name, process ID and
			  name of the function generating the error, and the
			  error message.  Note that different services can
			  share a single log file because enough information
			  is included to uniquely identify each error.

	   -e		  Exit after serving each RPC request.	Using the -e
			  option, the inetd security file /var/adm/inetd.sec
			  can control access to RPC services.

	   -n		  Exit only if

			       +  portmap dies (see portmap(1M)),

			       +  another rpc.rstatd registers with portmap,
				  or

			       +  rpc.rstatd becomes unregistered with
				  portmap.

			  The -n option is more efficient since a new
			  process is not launched for each RPC request.
			  Note, this option is the default.
