syseventd


NAME
     syseventd - kernel system event notification daemon

SYNOPSIS
     /usr/lib/sysevent/syseventd [-d debug_level] [-r rootdir]

DESCRIPTION
     syseventd is a user-level daemon that  accepts  delivery  of
     system  event  buffers from the kernel. Once an event buffer
     has been delivered to syseventd, it, in  turn,  attempts  to
     propagate the event to all interested end event subscribers.

     Event subscribers take the  form  of  a  syseventd  loadable
     module  (SLM).  syseventd passes the event buffer to each of
     its subscribers and in return expects a notification  as  to
     the successful or unsuccessful delivery attempt.

     Upon  successful  delivery  of  the  event  buffer  to   all
     interested  event  subscribers,  syseventd  frees  the event
     buffer from the kernel event queue.

OPTIONS
     The following options are supported:

     -d debug_level  Enable debug mode. Messages are  printed  to
                     the invoking user's terminal.



     -r rootdir      Cause syseventd to  use  an  alternate  root
                     path  when creating its door and lock files.
                     Modules continue to be loaded from the stan-
                     dard module directories.
