SYNOPSIS

rpc.statd [-d]

DESCRIPTION

The rpc.statd utility is a daemon which co-operates with rpc.statd daemons on other hosts to provide a status monitoring service. The daemon accepts requests from programs running on the local host (typically, rpc.lockd(8), the NFS file locking daemon) to monitor the status of specified hosts. If a monitored host crashes and restarts, the remote daemon will notify the local daemon, which in turn will notify the local program(s) which requested the monitoring service. Conversely, if this host crashes and re-starts, when the rpc.statd re-starts, it will notify all of the hosts which were being monitored at the time of the crash.

The following option is available:

-d Cause debugging information to be written to syslog, recording all RPC transactions to the daemon. These messages are logged with level LOG_DEBUG and facility LOG_DAEMON. Error conditions are logged irrespective of this option, using level LOG_ERR.

The rpc.statd utility must NOT be invoked by inetd(8) because the protocol assumes that the daemon will run from system start time. Instead, it should be run from rc(8) after the network has been started.
