NAME

Solaris::SMF - Manipulate Solaris 10 services from Perl

VERSION

version 1.0.1

SYNOPSIS

Interface to Sun's Service Management Facility in Solaris 10. This module provides a wrapper around 'svcs', 'svcadm' and 'svccfg'.

The SMF in Solaris is a replacement for inetd as well as the runlevel-based stopping and starting of daemons. Service definitions are stored in an XML database.

The biggest advantages in using SMF are the resiliency support, consistent interface and inter-service dependencies it offers. Services that die for any reason can be automatically restarted by the operating system; all services can be enabled or disabled using the same commands; and services can be started as soon as all the services they depend upon have been started, rather than at a fixed point in the boot process.

EXPORT

FUNCTIONS
