NAME
rpc.statd, statd - Network status monitor daemon SYNOPSIS
/usr/sbin/rpc.statd [-c] OPTIONS
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 daemon, 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
A directory created by the statd daemon. Each file name in the directory is the host name of a client or server that the statd daemon will notify upon its recovery. A backup directory created by the statd daemon. A file created by the statd daemon to store its state number. SEE ALSO

NAME
rpc.lockd, lockd - Network lock daemon SYNOPSIS
/usr/sbin/rpc.lockd [-b hostname] [-c] [-d debug] [-g graceperiod] [-h hashsize] [-s] [-t timeout] OPTIONS
The default behavior will create and bind a socket for each protocol per interface on the system. When the -b switch is specified, one socket per protocol will be created and bind to the passed IP address. Available only on TruCluster Server systems. This option starts the clusterwide lock daemon, which helps provide highly available NFS service. Do not use -c directly. Highly available NFS service is config- ured by default and typically does not require intervention. If you do need to start the clusterwide lock daemon, use the CAA command, caa_start cluster_lockd. For more information, see the TruCluster Server Administration manual. Internal Use Only. Use this option only under the direction of technical support personnel. Causes the rpc.lockd daemon to use the variable graceperiod (in seconds) as the grace period dura- tion instead of the default value of 15 seconds. Internal Use Only. Causes the rpc.lockd daemon to use the variable timeout (in seconds) as the interval instead of the default value of 5 seconds to retransmit a lock request to the remote server. DESCRIPTION
The rpc.lockd daemon processes lock requests that are either sent locally by the kernel or remotely by another lock daemon. The NFS locking service makes this advisory locking support possible by using the fcntl system call and the lockf subroutine. The rpc.lockd daemon forwards lock requests for remote data to the server site's lock daemon. The rpc.lockd daemon then requests the status monitor daemon, rpc.statd, for monitor service. The reply to the lock request is not sent to the kernel until the status daemon and the server site's lock daemon have replied. If either the status monitor or server site's lock daemon is unavailable, the reply to a lock request for remote data is delayed until all daemons become available. When a server recovers, it waits for a grace period for all client site lock daemons to submit reclaim requests. Client site lock daemons are notified by rpc.statd of the server recovery and promptly resubmit previously granted lock requests. If a client site's lock daemon fails to secure previously granted locks at the server site, it sends the signal SIGLOST to all the processes that were previously holding locks and cannot reclaim them.
