               counterparts include utilities such as envstat(8) and daemons
               such as powerd(8).

           o   An interface for the purpose of delivering different system and
               power events to userspace; sysmon_pswitch(9).

           o   A general purpose sensor framework, sysmon_envsys(9).

           o   A general purpose task queue, sysmon_taskq(9).
