       poold - automated resource pools partitioning daemon

       poold [-l level]

       poold provides automated resource partitioning facilities. poold can be
       enabled or disabled using  the  Solaris	Service	 Management  Facility,
       smf(5).	poold  requires	 the  Resource	Pools facility to be active in
       order to operate.

       The dynamic resource pools service's fault management resource  identi‐
       fier (FMRI) is:


       The resource pools service's FMRI is:


       poold's configuration details are held in a libpool(3LIB) configuration
       and you can access all customizable behavior from this configuration.

       poold periodically examines the load on the system and decides  whether
       intervention  is	 required  to maintain optimal system performance with
       respect to resource consumption. poold also responds to externally ini‐
       tiated (with respect to poold) changes of either resource configuration
       or objectives.

       If intervention is required, poold attempts to reallocate the available
       resources to ensure that performance objectives are satisfied. If it is
       not possible for poold to meet performance objectives with  the	avail‐
       able  resources,	 then a message is written to the log. poold allocates
       scarce resources according to the objectives configured by the adminis‐
       trator.	The  system  administrator must determine which resource pools
       are most deserving of scarce resource and  indicate  this  through  the
       importance of resource pools and objectives.

       The following options are supported:

       -l level
		   Specify the vebosity level for logging information.

		   Specify  level  as ALERT, CRIT, ERR, WARNING, NOTICE, INFO,
		   and DEBUG. If level is not supplied, then the default  log‐
		   ging level is INFO.

			       A  condition  that  should be corrected immedi‐
			      ately, such as a corrupted system database.

			      Critical conditions, such as hard device errors.


			      Warning messages.

			       Conditions that are not error  conditions,  but
			      that may require special handling.

			      Informational messages.

			      Messages	that  contain  information normally of
			      use only when debugging a program.

       When invoked manually, with the -l option, all log output  is  directed
       to standard error.

       Example 1 Modifying the Default Logging Level

       The following command modifies the default logging level to ERR:

	 # /usr/lib/pool/poold -l ERR

       Example 2 Enabling Dynamic Resource Pools

       The following command enables dynamic resource pools:

	 # /usr/sbin/svcadm enable svc:/system/pools/dynamic

       See attributes(5) for descriptions of the following attributes:

       │Interface Stability │ See below.      │

       The invocation is Evolving. The output is Unstable.

       pool_set_status(3POOL), libpool(3LIB), attributes(5), smf(5)
