       fsdaemon - pass-through daemon for processing system commands

       The  is	a user level daemon that provides a mechanism to pass informa‐
       tion between applications and common commands and  library  functional‐
       ity,  allowing certain applications to dynamically add functionality to
       a system.  This is currently only supported for the class of APIs, such

       The  API	 are not yet publicly available, but the commands that use the
       mentioned APIs depend on this daemon to always be running in the	 HP-UX

       When	 is  started, indicates whether it should fork a child process
		 and exit the parent process or run just as the parent process
		 and  not  return.   A	value of 1 for fork will make fork and
		 exec a child process and then cause  the  parent  process  to

       The entries to start are in the file.   These  entries  be  present  to

       and unsupported.

       The  following  are  some  of the HP-UX commands that use via the above

       If is not running, the errno will be returned by	 an  application  that
       invokes	these  APIs.  If this happens, please see your system adminis‐

       The APIs are not yet publicly available, but the commands that use  the
       mentioned  family of APIs depend on this daemon to always be running on
       HP-UX environments.  The administrator is not expected  to  invoke  the
       command from the shell prompt; it should always be started via an entry

       This manpage is provided for administrator's trouble shooting purposes,
       and  to	allow  the system administrator to repair the entries for this
       daemon in case of corruption.
