SESD(8)                 OpenBSD System Manager's Manual                SESD(8)

NAME
     sesd - monitor SCSI Environmental Services Devices

SYNOPSIS
     sesd [-d] [-t poll-interval] device [device ...]

DESCRIPTION
     sesd monitors SCSI Environmental Services (or SAF-TE) devices for changes
     in state and logs such changes to the system error logger (see
     syslogd(8)).  At least one device must be specified.  When no other op-
     tions are supplied, sesd detaches and becomes a daemon, by default waking
     up every 30 seconds to poll each device for a change in state.

     The options are as follows:

     -p poll-interval
             Change the interval of polling from the default 30 seconds to the
             number of seconds specified.

     -d      Instead of detaching and becoming a daemon, stay attached to the
             controlling terminal and log changes there as well as via the
             system logger.

     The user may then use getencstat(8) to get more detailed information
     about the state of the enclosure device or objects within the enclosure
     device.

BUGS
     This is something of a toy, but it is better than nothing.
