Service Management Facility(SMF)

The Service Management Facility (SMF) is a core component of the new Predictive Self-Healing set of technologies introduced in Solaris 10. With SMF, system administrators can use simple command line utilities to easily identify, observe, and manage both the services provided by the system and the system itself.

SMF has a limited yet powerful set of commands. Each command has several options which cover the tasks required to manage Solaris systems. The following table lists the SMF commands.

Command   –  Description

svcs        –      Reports service status

svcadm  –     Used for service management: e.g., starting, stopping and restoring services

EXAMPLE:

my-system# svcs -a

1   my-system# svcadm enable apache2
2

Similarly we can disable and restart the services.
