Managing Dynamic Resource Pools

The DRP service is managed by the service management facility (SMF) under the service identifier svc:/system/pools/dynamic.

Administrative actions on this service, such as enabling, disabling, or requesting restart, can be performed using the svcadm command. The service's status can be queried using the svcs command. See the svcs(1) andsvcadm(1M) man pages for more information.

The SMF interface is the preferred method for controlling DRP, but for backward compatibility, the following methods can also be used.

  • If dynamic resource allocation is not required, poold can be stopped with the SIGQUIT or the SIGTERM signal. Either of these signals causes poold to terminate gracefully.

  • Although poold will automatically detect changes in the resource or pools configuration, you can also force a reconfiguration to occur by using the SIGHUP signal.
