Commands to check the OS services in SOLARIS 10


Service Management Facility(SMF)

The Service Management Facility (SMF) is a core component of the new Predictive Self-Healing set of technologies introduced in Solaris 10. With SMF, system administrators can use simple command line utilities to easily identify, observe, and manage both the services provided by the system and the system itself.

SMF has a limited yet powerful set of commands. Each command has several options which cover the tasks required to manage Solaris systems. The following table lists the SMF commands.

Command   -  Description

svcs        -      Reports service status

svcadm  -     Used for service management: e.g., starting, stopping and restoring services

my-system# svcs -a

online         Jan_10   svc:/network/ftp:default

1   my-system# svcadm enable apache2
3                   To display its status, use the svcs command:

4             my-system# svcs http
5                   STATE       STIME     FMRI
   online      11:26:46  svc:/network/http:apache2

Similarly we can disable and restart the services.
