NAME
     in.discardd - UDP or TCP discard protocol service

SYNOPSIS
     in.discardd

     FMRI
     svc:/internet/discard:default

DESCRIPTION
     FMRI stands for Fault Management Resource Identifier. It  is
     used to identify resources managed by the Fault Manager. See
     fmd(1M) and smf(5).

     The in.discardd service provides the server-side of the dis-
     card  protocol.  This  protocol  is  used  for debugging and
     bandwidth measurement and is available on both TCP  and  UDP
     transports through port 9.

     The in.discardd service is  an  inetd(1M)  smf(5)  delegated
     service.   The   in.discardd   detects  which  transport  is
     requested by examining the socket it is passed by the  inetd
     daemon.

     The discard service simply throws away any data it  receives
     from the client.

     TCP-based service

         Once a connection is established, the  in.discardd  dis-
         cards  any  data received. No response is generated. The
         connection remains open until the client terminates it.



     UDP-based service

         The  in.discardd  listens  for  UDP  datagrams.  When  a
         datagram   is  received,  the  server  discards  it.  No
         response is sent.
