RFUDAEMON(8)                System Manager's Manual               RFUDAEMON(8)



NAME
       rfudaemon - Remote File Sharing daemon

SYNOPSIS
       rfudaemon

AVAILABILITY
       This  program  is  available with the RFS software installation option.
       Refer to for information on how to install optional software.

DESCRIPTION
       The RFS daemon, rfudaemon, is started automatically by  rfstart(8)  and
       runs  as a daemon process while Remote File Sharing is active.  It lis-
       tens for unexpected events, such  as  broken  network  connections  and
       forced  unmounts,  and  invokes  rfuadmin(8) to execute the appropriate
       administrative procedures.  Events recognized by rfudaemon are as  fol-
       lows:

       disconnect
              A  link  to  a remote resource has been cut.  rfudaemon executes
              rfuadmin, with two arguments: disconnect and  the  name  of  the
              disconnected resource.

       fumount
              A  remote  server  machine has forced an unmount of a resource a
              local machine has mounted.  rfudaemon  executes  rfuadmin,  with
              two   arguments:  fumount  and  the  name  of  the  disconnected
              resource.

       getumsg
              A remote user-level program has sent  a  message  to  the  local
              rfudaemon.   Currently  the  only  message sent is fuwarn, which
              notifies rfuadmin that a resource  is  about  to  be  unmounted.
              rfudaemon  sends rfuadmin the fuwarn, the resource name, and the
              number of seconds in which the forced unmount will occur.

       lastumsg
              The local machine wants to stop the rfudaemon (rfstop(8)).  This
              causes rfudaemon to exit.
