NAME

snstatd – StorNext Statistics Daemon

SYNOPSIS

StorNext File System process

DESCRIPTION

snstatd is a daemon that is launched by the StorNext File System (SNFS) fsmpm(8)process. It is used to gather statistics about file system activity and related activity such as I/O and storage manager activity. This daemon also services requests from the qustat command and archives statistics to .csv files. The archive files reside in /usr/cvfs/qustats.

snstatd is configured using the qustat.conf(5) configuration file, which specifies the intervals for gathering and archiving statistics. Debugging levels can also be specified in this file.

snstatd may be started, stopped or restarted in cvadmin(8) using the startd, stopd, restartd commands respectively. This may be done to propagate changes made to the existing qustat.conf(5) file.

snstatd logs to /usr/cvfs/debug/snstatd.log for debugging purposes.

ENVIRONMENT

snstatd is available on all StorNext installs.
