INTRD(1M) Maintenance Commands INTRD(1M)


NAME


intrd - interrupt distribution daemon

SYNOPSIS


/usr/lib/intrd


DESCRIPTION


The intrd daemon is started at boot time to monitor the assignments
between interrupts and CPUs. If intrd decides that the current
assignments are imbalanced and harmful to system performance, it will
generate and implement new assignments.


Any notifications will be delivered via syslogd(1M).


Because intrd dynamically monitors a system for optimal performance, it
consumes a small amount of CPU time, even on an otherwise idle system.
This behavior is normal.

NOTES


The interrupt distribution daemon is managed by the service management
facility, smf(5), under the service identifier:

svc:/system/intrd:default


Administrative actions on this service, such as enabling, disabling, or
requesting restart, can be performed using svcadm(1M). The service's
status can be queried using the svcs(1) command.
