icapd - Instant Capacity (iCAP) daemon.
The (formerly ) daemon is installed and started as part of the Instant
Capacity software on all potential iCAP systems, and respawns itself if
killed. If this daemon is not running, other Instant Capacity commands
fail. The operations this daemon performs are vital in keeping the
complexwide view of the Instant Capacity state current. The following
entry is added to /etc/inittab in order to have start and respawn
icap:23456:respawn:/usr/lbin/icapd # Instant Capacity daemon
This daemon is not started on hardware that is not supported under the
Instant Capacity program. If is installed and running on a system with
Instant Capacity components present (cores, cells, or memory), it sends
daily asset report email to HP (if so configured), tracks temporary
capacity, sends exception notifications, and maintains a healthy
Instant Capacity state.
For more information about the functions that performs for Instant
Capacity systems, see the located at /usr/share/doc/icapUserGuide.pdf.
The daemon reports errors via (see syslog(3C)). Exception notification
email is sent to root and to the system contact email address (config‐
ured via the command (see icapmodify(1M)).
The daemon performs periodic operations based on the time of day. The
daemon is spawned by and gets its time zone specification from the
/etc/default/tz file. By default, the time zone specified in
/etc/default/tz is EST5EDT. You can specify which time zone the daemon
uses to interpret its current time by modifying the /etc/default/tz
file. For details about the time zone format, see environ(5). A
restart of the daemon is required before the new time zone value takes
effect (that is, kill the process).
