RPC.SPRAYD(8)             BSD System Manager's Manual            RPC.SPRAYD(8)

NAME
     rpc.sprayd, sprayd -- spray server

SYNOPSIS
     /usr/libexec/rpc.sprayd

DESCRIPTION
     rpc.sprayd is a server which records packets sent by the spray(8) command
     and sends a traffic report to the originator of the packets.  The
     rpc.sprayd daemon is normally invoked by inetd(8).

     rpc.sprayd uses an RPC protocol defined in /usr/include/rpcsvc/spray.x.

SEE ALSO
     spray(8)

SECURITY CONSIDERATIONS
     As rpc.sprayd responds to packets generated by spray(8), remote users can
     cause a denial of network service against the local host by saturating
     requests to rpc.sprayd.
