NAME


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
example). 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).

SEE ALSO


svcs(1), inetadm(1M), inetd(1M) listen(1M), pmadm(1M), sacadm(1M),
spray(1M), svcadm(1M), attributes(5), smf(5)

NOTES


The rpc.sprayd service is managed by the service management facility,
smf(5), under the service identifier:

svc:/network/rpc/spray:default


Administrative actions on this service, such as enabling, disabling, or
requesting restart, can be performed using svcadm(1M). Responsibility for
initiating and restarting this service is delegated to inetd(1M). Use
inetadm(1M) to make configuration changes and to view configuration
information for this service. The service's status can be queried using
the svcs(1) command.
