What You See Is What You Get Element Service Management Facility

 


The Service Management Facility (SMF) is a feature of the operating system to manage system and application services, replacing the legacy init scripting start-up mechanism common to prior releases of Oracle Solaris and other UNIX operating systems. SMF improves the availability of a system by ensuring that essential system and application services run continuously even in the event of any hardware or software failures. SMF is one of the components of the wider Oracle Solaris predictive self-healing capability.
