network status monitor
/etc/statd [ -d debuglevel ]
statd is an intermediate version of the status
monitor. It interacts with
to provide the crash and recovery functions for the locking
services on NFS.
statd preserves crash/recovery state in the
directory /etc/sm. The record file
records the hostname of all currently monitored systems;
the recover file records the hostnames of all
systems that have as yet not been notified of the
statd's failure; and the state file
records the statd's current version number.
statd has extensive internal reporting
capabilities. A level of 2 will report significant
events. A level of 4 will report internal state and all
status monitor request traffic.
The crash of a site is only detected upon its recovery.
