envmond - Environmental Monitoring daemon
Environmental Monitoring provides a means of detecting system threshold
conditions, that if exceeded, could result in a loss of data or damage to
the system itself. Using the envmond daemon, thresholds levels can be
checked and corrective action can ensue before any damage occurs.
The envmond daemon performs the following:
+ Queries the system for exceeded threshold levels.
+ Broadcasts a message to users warning of high threshold conditions or
fan failure, and suggests corrective action.
+ Sends a message to users when a high temperature condition has been
+ Notifies all users that an orderly shutdown is to be initiated if
recovery is not possible.
To enable Environmental Monitoring, the envmond daemon must be started dur-
ing the system boot, but after the eSNMP and Server System MIB agents have
started. Before starting Environmental Monitoring, a system check is per-
formed. If the system hardware does not support Environmental Monitoring,
the envmond daemon and Server System MIB are not started.
You can customize, start, and stop the envmond daemon using the envconfig
utility. For more information, see the envconfig reference page.
