fpsd


NAME
     fpsd - Fp-scrubber daemon

SYNOPSIS
     /usr/lib/fps/fpsd


DESCRIPTION
     fpsd is a user-level  daemon  that  periodically  runs  non-
     intrusive  tests  to  validate  proper  functioning  of  FPU
     (Floating Point  Unit)  hardware  in  the  system.  A  fault
     management  action is initiated by means of fmd(1M), in case
     an error is detected by the test.

EXIT STATUS
     The following exit values are returned:

     0

         Successful completion.


     non-zero

         An error occurred.


ATTRIBUTES
     See attributes(5) for descriptions of the  following  attri-
     butes:

     svcs(1),  fmd(1M),  svcadm(1M),  svccfg(1M),  attributes(5),
     smf(5)

NOTES
     The fpsd service is managed by the service management facil-
     ity, smf(5), under the service identifier:

       svc:/system/fpsd:default

     You can use svccfg(1M) to change the default fpsd behavior:

       Property Name            Type     Description
       -------------            ----     -----------
       config/exclude_cpus      astring  comma delimited list of
                                          CPU IDs to be excluded
                                          from proactive testing.




     Administrative actions on this service,  such  as  enabling,
     disabling,  or  requesting  restart,  can be performed using
     svcadm(1M). The service's status can be  queried  using  the
     svcs(1) command.


     Disabling the service can increase system's vulnerability to
     silent data corruption, if a fault were to develop in an FPU
     within the system.
