NAME

  rpc.statd, statd - Network status monitor daemon

SYNOPSIS

  /usr/sbin/rpc.statd [-c]

OPTIONS

  -c  Available	only on	TruCluster Server systems. This	option starts the
      clusterwide network status daemon, which helps provide highly available
      NFS service. Do not use -c directly. Highly available NFS	service	is
      configured by default and	typically does not require intervention. If
      you do need to start the clusterwide network status daemon, use the CAA
      command, caa_start cluster_lockd.

      For more information, see	the TruCluster Server Administration manual.

DESCRIPTION

  The rpc.statd	daemon monitors	the status of the client and server sites in
  response to a	request	made by	the local rpc.lockd daemon.  When a site
  failure is detected, the rpc.statd daemon notifies the local rpc.lockd dae-
  mon, which then processes the	recovery of the	locked files or	file regions.

RESTRICTIONS

  The crash of a site is only detected on its recovery.

FILES

  /etc/sm
      A	directory created by the statd daemon.	Each file name in the direc-
      tory is the host name of a client	or server that the statd daemon	will
      notify upon its recovery.

  /etc/sm.bak
      A	backup directory created by the	statd daemon.

  /etc/state
      A	file created by	the statd daemon to store its state number.
