 NAME
      sprayd - spray server

 SYNOPSIS
      /usr/lib/netsvc/spray/rpc.sprayd [-l log_file] [-e|-n]

 DESCRIPTION
      sprayd is an RPC server that records the packets sent by spray from
      another system (see spray(1M)).

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

    Options
      sprayd 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, 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 since 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.sprayd registers with portmap,
				  or

			       +  rpc.sprayd becomes unregistered with
				  portmap.

      The -n option is more efficient because a new process is not launched
      for each RPC request.  -n is the default.
