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

rpc.sprayd, sprayd - spray server SYNOPSIS
/usr/lib/netsvc/spray/rpc.sprayd DESCRIPTION
rpc.sprayd is a server that records the packets sent by spray(1M). The rpc.sprayd daemon may be started by inetd(1M) or listen(1M). The service provided by rpc.sprayd is not useful as a networking benchmark as it uses unreliable connectionless transports, (udp for exam- ple). It can report a large number of packets dropped when the drops were caused by the program sending packets faster than they can be buffered locally (before the packets get to the network medium).

Responsibil- ity for initiating and restarting this service is delegated to inetd(1M). Use inetadm(1M) to make configuration changes and to view config- uration information for this service. The service's status can be queried using the svcs(1) command. SunOS 5.11 4 Nov 2004 rpc.sprayd(1M)
