NAME

envconfig - Configures the Environmental Monitoring daemon  

SYNOPSIS

/usr/sbin/envconfig -c var=value
/usr/sbin/envconfig start | stop
/usr/sbin/envconfig -q  

FLAGS

Environmental Monitoring provides a means of detecting system threshold conditions, that if exceeded, could result in a loss of data or damage to the system itself. To detect and notify users of critical conditions, the envmond daemon is used. This utility, envconfig, is used to customize the envmond daemon. This section describes the envconfig flags you can use to configure the daemon. Sets the variables that specify how the system environment is monitored. These variables are stored in the /etc/rc.config file and are read by the envmond daemon at system startup. If a variable is not set, the default value of that variable is assumed. Specifies the state of Environmental Monitoring. If this variable is set to zero (0), the Environmental Monitoring package is not started during the system boot. If this variable is set to 1, and Environmental Monitoring is supported by that platform, it is started during the system boot. The default value is zero (0). Specifies the time (in minutes) that can elapse between the detection of a high temperature condition and the shutdown of the system. The default value is 15 minutes. Specifies the threshold level that can be encountered before the envmond daemon broadcasts a warning and suggested action. Specifies the frequency (in seconds) between queries of the system by the envmond daemon. The default value is 60 seconds. Specifies the path of a user-defined script that you want to the envmond daemon to execute when a high threshold level is encountered. The envmond daemon continues to check the environment after the script has executed and proceeds as needed should the high threshold levels persist.

If you set this variable, the envmond daemon directs output from the script to /dev/console. Output is not displayed on standard output or written to a file as this is not the behavior of the daemon. To display on standard output, explicitly specify the logger command within the user defined script. Turns the envmond daemon on or off after system startup. Displays the values of ENVMON_CONFIGURED, ENVMON_GRACE_PERIOD, ENVMON_HIGH_THRESH, ENVMON_MONITOR_PERIOD and ENVMON_USER_SCRIPT as specified in the /etc/rc.config file. If a specified entry is not found, the environmental variable is not displayed.  

DESCRIPTION

The envconfig utility is used to customize the envmond daemon. You must have root privileges to use this utility. Using this utility, you can: Specify whether or not Environmental Monitoring is turned on or off at system startup. Specify how much time can elapse between the envmond daemon encountering a critical condition and the daemon initiating an orderly shutdown of the system. Specify how frequently the envmond daemon queries the system for information. Start and stop the envmond after Environmental Monitoring has been turned on at system startup. Display the settings of the environment variables as specified in the /etc/rc.config file.  

EXAMPLES

In the following example the system shuts down in 10 minutes if the temperature does not fall below the critical threshold. /usr/sbin/envconfig -c ENVMON_GRACE_PERIOD=10  

FILES

A database that contains the values of the environment monitoring variables.
