rpc.statd, statd - Network status monitor daemon
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
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.
The crash of a site is only detected on its recovery.
A directory created by the statd daemon. Each file name in the direc‐
tory 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 dae‐
mon. A file created by the statd daemon to store its state number.
