       kcmond - EMS Kernel Tunable Monitor daemon



       The  kcmond  daemon monitors the consumption of kernel resources. It is
       an Event Monitoring Services (EMS - see ems(5)) monitor. The data  col‐
       lected by kcusage can be displayed by kcusage(1M).

       kcmond  includes	 a  resource  dictionary file (/etc/opt/resmon/dictio‐
       nary/kcmond_01.dict) which is used by EMS  to  identify	resources  for

       Users  can  control  the monitoring of each kernel tunable by setting a
       percentage value for the consumption of that resource. For example,  if
       the  user sets a value of 75 for nproc, the Kernel Tunable Monitor will
       report an event when the number of processes reaches 75% of  the	 nproc

       The  kcalarm(1M)	 command is used to add, modify and delete kernel tun‐
       able alarms. The kcusage(1M) command is used to view data collected  by
       kcmond.	The  kcweb(1M)	command	 provides  a Web-based, graphical user
       interface to control alarms and view usage data,	 including  graphs  of
       the usage data.

       kcmond is a light weight daemon that will exit after being idle for ten

       For a complete list of the kernel tunables that can be  monitored  with
       this daemon, see the kcusage(1M) manpage.

       kcmond  must  be	 run  by the registrar process of the Event Monitoring
       Service (EMS) and is not designed to be run from the command line.

       was developed by Hewlett-Packard.


       The resource dictionary for kcmond, describes the location (e.g.	 /sys‐
       tem/kernel_tunables/nproc) of kernel tunables in the resource hierarchy
       and references kcmond as the resource monitor.
