SYNOPSIS

       smt [ -d ] [ -v ] [ config-file ]


DESCRIPTION

       The  service monitoring tool is a daemon which tests user-
       defined services periodically to determine if the services
       are functioning correctly.


OPTIONS

       The following options are supported:


       -d     No-daemon. The tool will not become a daemon.

       -v     Print version information and exit.

       config-file
              The  pathname of the configuration file. If none is
              given, the  configuration  is  read  from  standard
              input. The format of the configuration is described
              in the smt-config(4) man page.


EXIT STATUS

       The following exit values are returned:

       0      Successful completion.

NOTES

       The following signals have the specified effect when  sent
       to the daemon process using the kill(1) command:

       SIGHUP      The  daemon  will  re-read  its  configuration
                   file. The state of tests between the old  con­
                   figuration  and  the new configuration is pre­
                   served if the test names do not change.

       SIGUSR1     The daemon will write its  running  configura­
                   tion  to  a  file. The location of the file is
                   randomly generated at the time the  signal  is
                   received,  and  is logged to the daemon's log­
                   file.

       SIGUSR2     The daemon will write the state of  all  tests
                   to  a  file.  The location of the file is ran­
                   domly generated at  the  time  the  signal  is
                   received,  and  is logged to the daemon's log­
                   file.
