DESCRIPTION


sacadm is the administrative command for the upper level of the Service
Access Facility hierarchy (port monitor administration). sacadm performs
the following functions:

o adds or removes a port monitor

o starts or stops a port monitor

o enables or disables a port monitor

o installs or replaces a per-system configuration script

o installs or replaces a per-port monitor configuration script

o prints requested port monitor information


Requests about the status of port monitors (-l and -L) and requests to
print per-port monitor and per-system configuration scripts (-g and -G
without the -z option) may be executed by any user on the system. Other
sacadm commands may be executed only by the super-user.

OPTIONS


-a
Add a port monitor. When adding a port monitor, sacadm
creates the supporting directory structure in /etc/saf and
/var/saf and adds an entry for the new port monitor to
/etc/saf/_sactab. The file _sactab already exists on the
delivered system. Initially, it is empty except for a
single line, which contains the version number of the
Service Access Controller. Unless the command line that
adds the new port monitor includes the -f option with the
-x argument, the new port monitor will be started. Because
of the complexity of the options and arguments that follow
the - a option, it may be convenient to use a command
script or the menu system to add port monitors.


-c cmd
Execute the command string cmd to start a port monitor. The
-c option may be used only with a -a. A -a option requires
a -c.


-d
Disable the port monitor pmtag.


-e
Enable the port monitor pmtag.


-f dx
The -f option specifies one or both of the following two
flags which are then included in the flags field of the
_sactab entry for the new port monitor. If the -f option is
not included on the command line, no flags are set and the
default conditions prevail. By default, a port monitor is
started. A -f option with no following argument is illegal.

d
Do not enable the new port monitor.


x
Do not start the new port monitor.


-g
The -g option is used to request output or to install or
replace the per-port monitor configuration script
/etc/saf/pmtag/_config. -g requires a -p option. The -g
option with only a -p option prints the per-port monitor
configuration script for port monitor pmtag. The -g option
with a -p option and a -z option installs the file script
as the per-port monitor configuration script for port
monitor pmtag. Other combinations of options with -g are
invalid.


-G
The -G option is used to request output or to install or
replace the per-system configuration script
/etc/saf/_sysconfig. The -G option by itself prints the
per-system configuration script. The -G option in
combination with a -z option installs the file script as
the per-system configuration script. Other combinations of
options with a -G option are invalid.


-k
Stop port monitor pmtag.


-l
The -l option is used to request port monitor information.
The -l by itself lists all port monitors on the system. The
-l option in combination with the -p option lists only the
port monitor specified by pmtag. A -l in combination with
the -t option lists all port monitors of type type. Any
other combination of options with the -l option is invalid.


-L
The -L option is identical to the -l option except that the
output appears in a condensed format.


-n count
Set the restart count to count. If a restart count is not
specified, count is set to 0. A count of 0 indicates that
the port monitor is not to be restarted if it fails.


-p pmtag
Specifies the tag associated with a port monitor.


-r
Remove port monitor pmtag. sacadm removes the port monitor
entry from /etc/saf/_sactab. If the removed port monitor is
not running, then no further action is taken. If the
removed port monitor is running, the Service Access
Controller (SAC) sends it SIGTERM to indicate that it
should shut down. Note that the port monitor's directory
structure remains intact.


-s
Start a port monitor. The SAC starts the port monitor
pmtag.


-t type
Specifies the port monitor type.


-v ver
Specifies the version number of the port monitor. This
version number may be given as

-v `pmspec -V`


where pmspec is the special administrative command for port
monitor pmtag. This special command is ttyadm for ttymon
and nlsadmin for listen. The version stamp of the port
monitor is known by the command and is returned when pmspec
is invoked with a -V option.


-x
The -x option by itself tells the SAC to read its database
file (_sactab). The -x option with the -p option tells port
monitor pmtag to read its administrative file.


-y comment
Include comment in the _sactab entry for port monitor
pmtag.


-z script
Used with the -g and -G options to specify the name of a
file that contains a configuration script. With the -g
option, script is a per-port monitor configuration script;
with -G it is a per-system configuration script. Modifying
a configuration script is a three-step procedure. First a
copy of the existing script is made (-g or -G). Then the
copy is edited. Finally, the copy is put in place over the
existing script (-g or -G with -z).


OUTPUT


If successful, sacadm will exit with a status of 0. If sacadm fails for
any reason, it will exit with a nonzero status. Options that request
information will write the information on the standard output. In the
condensed format (-L), port monitor information is printed as a sequence
of colon-separated fields; empty fields are indicated by two successive
colons. The standard format (-l) prints a header identifying the
columns, and port monitor information is aligned under the appropriate
headings. In this format, an empty field is indicated by a hyphen. The
comment character is #.

EXAMPLES


Example 1: A sample output of the sacadm command.




The following command line adds a port monitor. The port monitor tag is
npack; its type is listen; if necessary, it will restart three times
before failing; its administrative command is nlsadmin; and the
configuration script to be read is in the file script:


sacadm -a -p npack -t listen -c /usr/lib/saf/listen npack
-v `nlsadmin -V` -n 3 -z script


Remove a port monitor whose tag is pmtag:


sacadm -r -p pmtag


Start the port monitor whose tag is pmtag:


sacadm -s -p pmtag


Stop the port monitor whose tag is pmtag:


sacadm -k -p pmtag


Enable the port monitor whose tag is pmtag:


sacadm -e -p pmtag


Disable the port monitor whose tag is pmtag:


sacadm -d -p pmtag


List status information for all port monitors:


sacadm -l


List status information for the port monitor whose tag is pmtag:


sacadm -l -p pmtag


List the same information in condensed format:


sacadm -L -p pmtag


List status information for all port monitors whose type is listen:


sacadm -l -t listen


Replace the per-port monitor configuration script associated with the
port monitor whose tag is pmtag with the contents of the file
file.config:


sacadm -g -p pmtag -z file.config
