NAME

  sm, sm.bak, state - Status monitor directories and file structures

SYNOPSIS

  /etc/sm, /etc/sm.bak,	/etc/state

DESCRIPTION

  The directories /etc/sm and /etc/sm.bak are generated	by the rpc.statd dae-
  mon.	Each entry in /etc/sm represents the name of the system	to be moni-
  tored	by the status monitor.	Upon its recovery, the status monitor moves
  all entries from the /etc/sm directory to the	/etc/sm.bak directory and
  notifies the corresponding statd of its recovery.

  The /etc/state file is generated by the rpc.statd daemon to record its ver-
  sion number; that is,	the number of times the	rpc.statd daemon was invoked.
  The version number is	incremented each time the system crashes or recovers.
  The system sends this	state number to	status monitors	on remote systems
  when it notifies them	of a crash or recovery.
