The implementation of the sm_service utility on:

  • UNIX includes two separate programs: sm_serviced, a long-running, system-level program, and sm_service, a command-line tool that communicates user requests to sm_serviced.

    The sm_service utility is installed with the SDK software (one per system), and is used from the BASEDIR/smarts/bin directory. Select the BASEDIR/smarts with the latest version of software. The utility can only be used to control services on the local machine.
