NAME
     intro - introduction to system maintenance and operation commands

DESCRIPTION
     The manual pages in section 8 contain information related to system oper-
     ation and maintenance.  They describe commands used to create new file
     systems, newfs(8); verify the integrity of the file systems, fsck(8);
     control disk usage, edquota(8); maintain system backups, dump(8); and re-
     cover files when disks die an untimely death, restore(8).

     The newfs(8) manual for the specific architecture the system is running
     on should be consulted when formatting disks and tapes.  Network related
     services like inetd(8) and ftpd(8) are also described.  The section
     crash(8) should be consulted to understand how to interpret system crash
     dumps.
