smsd process

Hello,

1- I would like to know the role of the smsd process under Tru64 Unix 5.1 (ES40 server );
It is consuming more than 30% of the CPU;
Can i terminate it.
2- How can i load "top" utlity on the above server.


Thanks and Regards

Roger

Re: smsd process

1. "man smsd"?

2. Uh, download the source kit and build it?

http://www.unixtop.org/
http://www.unixtop.org/download/

My Tru64 system is down at the moment, so I
can't immediately say which versions I've
been using.

Re: smsd process

smsd is used by 'sms' (SysMan Station) gui application. Feel free to stop it!

You can very well load 'top' on any server!

Were there any instructions in that kit,
along with "top.c"?

Re: smsd process

There may be a README or similar file along with the src file. Read and compile the program code to generate the binary file. Once that is done, you can run the 'top' binary.
