Last updated on JULY 29, 2016

Applies to:

Solaris Operating System - Version 10 3/05 and later
All Platforms

Goal

Solaris 10 Operating System introduced the Service Management Facility (SMF), which manages system services such as daemons. Debugging problems traditionally involves killing and restarting those daemons with debugging options. Under SMF the daemons will be immediately restarted so additional steps need to be taken.
